Live Dates: 2017-18
At Theatre Bristol we want to shine a light on independent artists and producers who help lead and shape the future of the arts.
We know it can be hard for independents to attend conferences and events, and that industry gatherings are often only accessible to salaried staff. That’s why we offer help with tickets, travel or accommodation costs for ‘TB Agents’ - artists and producers who want to attend events to soak up new ideas, make contacts and represent the independent sector.
All we ask in return is that they find a way to share their experience and learning. This might be by live tweeting the event, writing a blog, making a podcast, or hosting a conversation.
In our pilot year we offered 2 placements for people to attend IETM, and 9 ‘TB Agent’ opportunities for artists, primarily dancers, to attend events in the UK. You can read more here
In 2017-18 we plan to expand the initiative to offer 20 bursaries and to make the process more transparent. Proposals will be assessed 4 times a year by a panel including at least one artist. The proposal dates align with those for the ACE/BC Artist International Development Fund, in case you want to apply for an international event.

We need your help. We want to maintain this site for the 20,000 people who use it each month, but the technology it is built on needs serious updating. If you use the site please support us with a £3 donation, or whatever you feel able to give, so we can develop it and keep it a free and valuable resource for people who make and love theatre.
You can also give to us without costing you a penny by signing up to Easy Fundraising, so when you shop online from over 2500 retailers Theatre Bristol will receive a donation.
