the bAKEHOUSE Step Up program supports new artists, companies and work

bAKEHOUSE on opportunities * collaboration * diversity. Taking risks and saying Yes. And championing new and emerging artists, companies and work

Every month or so the bAKEHOUSE team hosts a MEET UP in the KXT Foyer. This is open to any and all! Drop in and say hi, tell us what you're up to, pitch an idea or project, ask a few questions, meet some folk. Got a problem you need to trouble shoot? We might just be able to recommend some people or a plan of action. Got a show on? Bring in some fliers. Or just want to know what's going on or what we're thinking about? This is your chance for a chat.  We'll open the doors at about 7.00 pm and hang around until 9ish. Grab a drink and head on up. Next MEET UP announced soon, to stay up to date subscribe to our eNews 

The bAKEHOUSE STEP UP team consists of 15 new and emerging practitioners: designers, directors, writers, producers, actors, and technicians. the KTXT team has worked closely with each member of the team to create a bespoke program of support.
