Grow Festival 2018

Grow is Hull Truck Theatre's artist development programme for artists of any age and at any stage of their career.

After an epic Hull UK City of Culture 2017, this year's Grow Festival builds on the confidence we've all gained, cements relationships and challenges artists to keep on keeping on.

For artists, Grow 2018 is centred around learning and development. Try something new, make connections and inspire your collaborative choices. For audiences, it's your chance to influence the making of new performance. Come in, make yourself at home, and shape some brand new work with Hull's hotbed of creative talent.
