Due to the extenuating circumstances which have arisen from the COVID-19 situation it has been decided to postpone this upcoming deadline. We hope to revisit a new timeline for this in June and will post updates here and in our newsletter.
The purpose of this fund
Informed by key goals contained within the Arts Council strategy and theatre policy Making Great Art Work and following a process of consultation we invite applications for proposals to develop innovative and art-led supports for the creation of excellent work in the independent theatre sector.
Applications will be considered from professional theatre artists* and/or collaborative entities that can demonstrate a proven track-record in theatre production and demonstrate partnerships of expertise with at least one organisation in receipt of Arts Council Strategic, Partnership or Arts Centre funding with a significant track record in the production and presentation of theatre to audiences e.g. production companies, festivals, Arts Centres.
Please note: Organisations in receipt of Strategic, Partnership or Arts Centre funding may not be the lead applicant. However, to be eligible, applications under this programme must be supported by at least one organisation in receipt of such Arts Council funding.
*Definitions for the purposes of this scheme: Professional theatre artist - any individual who works as a professional artist in a creative capacity in a theatre context, and are recognised as such by their peers. This could be a director, theatre maker, actor, playwright, designer, creative producer or a producing entity that is not in receipt of Strategic, Arts Centre or Partnership Funding.
