An open letter to theatre and performance makers

A group of theatre and performance organisations are coming together to offer support and a voice to freelancers. Their open letter explains why.

It includes the establishment of a national task force of self-employed theatre and performance makers. The purpose of the task force is to strengthen the influence of the self-employed theatre and performance community.

Theatre Bristol aims to support a freelancer to join the group. We are particularly interested in how organisations support artists and creative freelancers beyond their existing ‘families’, and works to foreground people from underrepresented backgrounds.
