We are delighted to announce the new cohort of Britten Pears Young Artists.

We have an exciting group of over 50 outstanding early career artists who will benefit from the opportunities in the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme (BPYAP) this year. They are drawn from all around the world and will be welcomed to Suffolk throughout the year.

These artists form our creative community of Britten Pears Young Artists for the year, and continue to build upon our legacy of bringing energetic and dynamic emerging artists to Snape to connect and be mentored by the world’s best performers, creatives and teachers.

As part of our family of Britten Pears Young Artists we will create bespoke artist development opportunities for them beyond the course they are participating in. This may include additional tuition and masterclasses, as well as wider professional development, industry-relevant offers and performance/commissioning opportunities. Where relevant, we will also connect them with other strands and departments of work at Britten Pears Arts, including our community team, our arts, health and wellbeing work, experimental Residencies, as well as having access to The Red House, Aldeburgh for research & the archive.
