Derby Theatre and In Good Company artists opportunities

Artist Bursaries

Derby Theatre are offering three bursaries of £2000 to help create high quality work made by artists of colour. They are for artists in the midlands of any theatre-related discipline to help develop their practice (eg take up an Assistant Directorship on a Derby Theatre show or work on a R&D etc), they are ring fenced for artists of colour (BAME) in the recognition that these artists are currently under-represented in Derby Theatre’s pool of artists and in the wider industry. If you have any questions about your application, please email Rafia on r.hussain@derby.ac.uk.
