Exeter Phoenix is proud to provide support to a wide range of artists and creative projects. Whether you are just starting to find your feet, or are an established artist embarking on a new project, we love supporting artists where we can.

Over the years, we have helped countless creative projects come to fruition. We've helped people take their next steps in the industry, offered advice and training, and provided the space and resources needed to let ideas take shape. Our support has helped filmmakers, theatre companies, visual artists, makers, musicians, young people and more.

Read on to find out about some of the ways we provide support to artists in the region and beyond.
