Announcing Theatre Bristol’s new Artist Support Associates!

We were overwhelmed with brilliant applications for our recent Artist Support Associate recruitment round. We would like to thank everyone who applied, and we are delighted to announce that we have appointed Ella Good and Caroline Williams to take over the ASA mantle this Spring.

FInd out more about them below:

Caroline Williams is a director, dramaturge and participatory artist. She was one of the first artistic associates of The Yard Theatre and Somerset House Studios. Caroline’s work is multidisciplinary, often focusing on autobiography and current political issues. At the core of her work is a passion to give people who wouldn’t primarily consider themselves artists a platform to create great works of art. Projects include Can You Hear Me Now for MAYK, Make Yourself At Home at Nuit Blanche Bruxelles, Now Is The Time To Say Nothing at The Young Vic, Millions of Years for English National Opera, Dad Dancing with Second Hand Dance, Puffball at The Yard, Shadwell’s Tempest and Le Malade Imaginaire with OAE at Shakespeare’s Globe. Caroline is part of Pervasive Media Studios and Residence.

Ella Good creates socially engaged work that explores our relationship with space, Earth and the future, in collaboration with artist Nicki Kent. As part of community based project series A Decade With Mars, her work has ranged from sending weather balloons to film space, making a science fiction film with 8 year olds and working with scientists on a fake Mars outpost in Utah. Her work has been been shown at a symposium alongside Turner Prize winners Assemble, featured live on BBC News and internationally in Ireland, Japan and the USA.

They will be joining Karla Shacklock who will be returning from maternity leave in March, and we will be saying goodbye to our brilliant Artist Support Associates Gemma Paintin and Emma Williams.

We look forward to welcoming Ella and Caroline to the TB team!
