Devoted and Disgruntled

Sold out

Are you a theatre artist frustrated by the skills it takes to fund and create work?
Are you an arts organisation director frustrated by the amount of time spent chasing fundraising without the time to deliver excellent creativity?
Are you a manager in a non-profit or registered charity frustrated by the volatility in income and how it affects programming or staffing?
Have you known anyone made redundant to cut costs, due to lack of money?
Who is thinking about income sources? How do we support these thinkers?
Why can’t any theatre creative get involved in these questions?
When is taking corporate money “selling out”?
When is state funding an unhelpful dependency?
Have you ever wondered: will there ever be enough funding?
What models, partnerships and different approaches might work in the future?

The evening runs using Open Space technology which gives anyone the chance to propose a starting point for discussion, then take part in one of these conversations, flit between them all, or head to the bar.

Hatching Phase by Ella Road

Ella Road, one of our Emerging Writers’ ruminates on having writer’s block. There’s a tree outside my bedroom window That didn’t give any apples last year. I’d watched it carefully from my desk.

Bush Staff Recommends: LGBT+ Artists

February is an exciting time for reflection on all things LGBT+ as we celebrate communities past and present. Heterosexist society has meant that the great contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Asexual, Non-Binary and Intersex individuals have been systematically down-played, or entirely erased. LGBT+ History Month is a fantastic opportunity to combat this, sparking discussion and opening powerful…
