The Theatre Community Fund has been established to support the theatrical artists and professionals whose livelihoods and creative futures have been threatened in the wake of Covid-19.
This fund will be separated into two priority strands giving grants of up to £3000:
1. HARDSHIP grants in partnership with the Fleabag Support Fund
2. CREATIVE AND INNOVATION grants
Grants will be distributed in partnership with the Royal Theatrical Fund.
Applications for hardship grants will open monthly for five days with the next round open 3rd – 7th August.
Creative and innovation grants will open in late 2020 or early 2021, with the exact date to be agreed.
The campaign will pursue two main objectives:
Firstly, by adding their voice to existing arts funding campaigns, they aim to increase awareness of the vital role the theatrical arts play in the health of our nation.
Secondly, they will establish the Theatre Community Fund to support the hundreds of thousands of theatrical artists and professionals who currently face an existential threat to their livelihoods and creative futures.
