PLATFORM is a growing initiative to support breakout artists taking the next steps in their professional life.


At its core, PLATFORM provides a showcase opportunity for artists to show off a wide array of their work in an as-risk-free-as-possible environment, hosted at the historic Actors’ Church in Covent Garden – It serves as a loudhailer for the next generation of artists in London and champions those making work in music, spoken-word and across multi-form.


PLATFORM artists receive a one-night performance slot at our home in Covent Garden, hosted and helped along the way by the whole Iris team. We find artists through word-of-mouth, our own networks, and also through application, which are open to anyone, year round.


We’re looking for bold, innovative creatives who’ve built up a body of material across multiple projects, and who are looking to share their work to the world!


If you’re interested in becoming a PLATFORM artist, have a read of the further information pack, below, and then fill out the application form and equal opportunities monitoring forms, both below.


Applications are open year-round, but new additions to the PLATFORM roster will happen periodically. If you’ve any questions, get in touch with us at
