About the Stobbs New Ideas Fund
The Stobbs New Ideas Fund offers two artists and/or companies an opportunity to develop and present work, above-and-beyond the opportunities currently offered by Cambridge Junction. The artistic focus for the Stobbs New Ideas Fund is to support contemporary theatre, performance and live art.


Cambridge Junction is a creative hub for people and ideas where audiences and artists explore, experience and are inspired by art, entertainment and learning. We are a centre for talent development of contemporary performance for the East of England, supported by Arts Council England.

Cambridge Junction recognises the need to support Cambridge and the East of England’s creative ecology as a focus, as well as maintaining Cambridge and Cambridge Junction’s reputation with nationally significant companies, through a structured but adaptable programme of entry points for artists at all levels.

    • For artists and producers from further afield whose work fits our Artistic Policy, Arts Producer Daniel Kok is always happy to hear from new companies with show information and invitations. Please note he receives a high volume of emails, but endeavours to reply to personal correspondence.

Our artist development remit includes contemporary theatre, dance, live art, circus, spoken word, but not music. See Creative Learning for the music opportunities that we offer for emerging artists and bands.
