A Little Bit About
We have witnessed how a little support can go a long way for writers who are at pivotal points in their careers. Being able to take some time to focus on writing instead of pulling pints can prevent a writer’s career from stalling. Some of the people we have supported at just the right time have gone on to work for major BBC television shows, Netflix, and the National Theatre.
Due to the current crisis, we believe artists need help more than ever; otherwise we could risk losing many bold, brilliant, and exciting voices. To help during this difficult time our new artist support programme will release over £20,000 to support writers in the North of England. We're keen to support early career writers. By this we mean people who have already had at least one of their plays staged as a full-length production (60+ mins infront of a paying audience).
As a charity we share responsibility with other organisations to help get our industry back on its feet and stand in solidarity with freelance artists at this time of great uncertainty - we are therefore investing over 50% of our charitable reserves to deliver this programme.
