In this Producing Masterclass we will teach you all the principles about self-producing your performance: how to source and booking theatres, organizing production timelines, scheduling rehearsals and performances, how to recruit other professionals for your team and write contracts, hiring a PR, set up ticket prices and run your marketing.
Fundraising is a necessary part of making a performance and a very important way to sustain and support your work. In this Fundraising Workshop we will help you to identify and engage with new grants and funding bodies. You will learn how to create a cohesive funding application, a target audience, a budget and marketing plan to outreach your audiences.
