Starting from what artists actually want rather than assumptions about what they need, it offers commissions, mentoring and performance opportunities.
All In Good Company opportunities pay artists fairly. It also aims to support artists who aren’t usually represented in the creative industries.
We’re the organisations lead partner, joined by Attenborough Arts Centre; Burton Brewhouse; Lincolnshire One Venues; Mansfield Old Library; Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton; Nonsuch in Nottingham; Curve, Leicester; Nottingham Playhouse, Royal and Derngate in Northampton and The Core at Corby Cube.
In Good Company receives funding from Arts Council England and, until September 2022, from the European Regional Development Fund through the Big House project.
/"What marks out In Good Company is that Derby began by asking artists what it was they wanted and needed rather than simply telling them what they had planned for them, and the scheme continues to consult."Lyn Gardner

Opportunities for all
In Good Company believes that artists should represent the world we live in. Opportunities are open to everyone, and we encourage people who identify with the following to apply:
- Artists from the global majority
- People from non-British backgrounds
- Lesbian, bisexual, gay and queer people
- People who are trans, non-binary, gender diverse and gender questioning
- People from working-class backgrounds
- D/deaf and Disabled people (including people with hidden disabilities)
We know that some people might find it harder to get in touch because they believe they don’t have enough knowledge or experience. We welcome questions about any of the opportunities we offer as part of In Good Company and we’ll give extra support to anyone who needs it.
We’re committed to advertising our opportunities widely.
