The South West Actor's Network

Connecting Actors across the South West Peninsula by Offering Continued Professional Development & Authentic, Meaningful Networking...

Inspired by conversations with a number of actors feeling isolated and disconnected in the region,  The Wheel have launched the South West Actors Network; to build connections between individuals, organisations and acting communities across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset.  It’s a low cost subscription service which offers actors opportunities for continuing professional development, creative networking and a sense of being part of a larger community.  For employers we offer a free and easy one stop shop service to access the network of professional actors living in the South West Peninsula.

For Employers...
