It’s officially British Summer Time and we are looking forward to the next few months of activity at Sustained Up North. STUN were pleased to receive a visit from respected actor Tyrone Huggins
, who took a good look around our theatre space and offices, we had an exchange of ideas, some tea and a chat. Tyrone is currently developing a companion piece to his play ‘The Honey Man’
which toured in 2012/13.
We are also excited to be working on what we are calling an ‘Ideas Engine’, a way of supporting and strengthening artists and small organisations’ project ideas before they go for funding. Watch this space!

Sustained Theatre Up North has come a long way over the past few years. As part of the national network of Sustained Theatre hubs, Manchester, has developed a network of diverse artists which it has supported and encouraged. Last year saw the opening of its own dedicated theatre space within the Z-arts building alongside an office space committed to housing and encouraging small creative enterprises.

A large part of that progress has been down to Miselo Kunda. Miselo has been Chair of Sustained Theatre Up North (STUN) for the past 4 years, bringing people together, fighting for resources and planning for the future. So we were sad to receive the news that Miselo is stepping down as Chair. We would like to take a moment to thank Miselo for all of her hard work, her dedication and good humour. The organisation would not be where it is without her.
