Creative Production Supports – A Theatre Resource Sharing Pilot Scheme
Informed by key goals contained within the Arts Council strategy and theatre policy Making Great Art Work, and following a process of consultation, the Arts Council invites 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.
