Talent Development

The Tipping Point Talent Development programme offers a progression route for emerging artists. Within this there are multiple entry points providing early access to advanced level support.


Advice Clinics

One-to-one advice sessions ran by our credible team to help you progress.


Creative Development Projects

These are primarily creative and music industry-focused early and intermediate stage support projects that work within: Electronic Music Production, Songwriting, and Music Industry Awareness & Performance. However, WeCreate also has higher profile elements.


Music Industry Masterclasses

Frequent fully-funded open events with high profile guest speakers and panelists from a range of backgrounds aimed at musicians of all levels wanting to know more about the industry.


Regional Live showcases

Evolution Emerging is our annual multi-venue festival which takes place at independent venues in the Ouseburn Valley. We also do select tour support (subject to capacity).


National Live showcases

Each year we conduct a showcase at The Great Escape festival in Brighton. This provides an opportunity for our artists to play to a live national audience as well as showcasing the best emerging artists from the North East.


Artist PR support

Utilising our vast network of music journalists, we can help build your profile in music, lifestyle and regional media.


Tipper of the Week

Each week one of our Tippers recommends their latest new music obsessions. Find out more here.
