Current Cryptic Associates are Josh Armstrong, Kathy Hinde, Heather Lander, Mark Lyken and Robbie Thomson.

Cryptic Associates was established in 2011 to nurture and develop the next generation of artists. Associates work across artfoms to create work which has sound and/or music at its heart.

Cryptic acts as a mentor, producer and promoter for a number of selected Associates giving them space and time to develop their creative and artistic practice. Utilising the wealth of Cryptic’s experience and expertise, this programme provides professional, artistic and practical support to help artists explore and excel.
