TB Agents 2017-18

Do you want to be a Theatre Bristol Agent?

Following our pilot year, in 2017-18 we plan to expand the TB Agent 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.

Next deadline: 19th February, 2pm. Applications received after this time cannot be considered for this round.
