Green Rooms Partnership
Bringing work into London, or visiting the capital to see theatre, comes with a large price tag for artists. One of the biggest costs is finding affordable, comfortable accommodation. With a single hotel room now costing in excess of £50, touring work to the capital is becoming impossible for companies.
New Diorama is partnering with the excellent Green Rooms – a unique arts hotel - to provide affordable accommodation for the first time. Based in a stunning art-deco building in Wood Green – just 20 minutes on the tube from NDT. The Green Rooms Partnership offers free accomodation for our NDT supported artists and £15-a-night beds in their comfortable dormitory rooms for NDT's Artist and Company Community.
With £15 being roughly the cost of a single ticket at NDT, this deal makes bringing a company to London affordable and achievable, and opens London up as a realistic option for many artists for whom previously it was out of reach.
Green Rooms' Sylvia Dietz, says:
"Green Rooms is the UK’s first arts-led independent social enterprise hotel. We opened in May 2016 and our mission is to support artists and creatives with affordable accommodation and event spaces in a beautiful setting that inspires creativity. As such we are an integral part of the London arts community and are delighted to join forces with New Diorama Theatre and support the great work they are doing in that field. We understand that London is becoming an increasingly unaffordable place for many artists and Green Room is helping to bridge that gap.
As a partner of the New Diorama Theatre we are excited to support their unique Artist Development Programme and very much look forward to welcoming young theatre companies from all over the UK and offer their artists a place to stay, a base where creative ideas and some brilliant ventures will be conceived."
