We have a close relationship with our Associate and Honorary Associate Artists. Our Artistic Director appoints them - inviting artists who have made an outstanding contribution to the life and reputation of our work.

The title is offered as a ‘thank you’ for their commitment and an acknowledgment of an artist’s achievements with the Company. We stay in regular contact with our Associates keeping them up to date with our current work and future plans. We also hope that there will be opportunities for them to come back and work with us again in the future.
