Diploma for Creative Producing with the CGO Institute

CGO has established a new programme over 16 weeks accessible to aspiring creative producers of theatre and the performing arts locally, nationally, and internationally. The course is cloud-based, run from Scotland, for a limited number of practitioners who will work together and learn from a range of established arts professionals.

The course may be centred around theatre practice, but it is open to creative producers working in all performing arts (including opera, live music, dance, circus, live art, musical theatre and festivals and more). Many producers work across a portfolio of projects which may also encompass visual arts, publishing and film. The course will not focus on these areas, but the skills taught will be transferable.

The course is cloud-based allowing participants to be together at one time on one platform working from their own home/work base. It is hoped that many will meet together ‘on the ground’ away from the cloud also. The course will help each participant find a mentor, placement and local network which are planned to be on the-ground interactions in and around your own planned future work base.
