We're collaborating with our friends at Live Theatre once again to offer a £2500 bursary for a north east based theatre maker/company to develop a new piece of work.Read more
The Empty Space works for a thriving independent theatre sector.
We believe that independent artists and small companies are an essential element of a vibrant theatre ecology and so we do all we can to help create conditions in which artists can flourish. Sometimes we provide artists with producers; sometimes we offer bursaries; sometimes we make introductions or offer mentoring; and sometimes we advocate for change at policy level. No two days are ever the same.
We're based in Newcastle upon Tyne, at the wonderful Dance City, and whilst much of what we do has a focus on the North of England we also work with partners from across the UK on national projects.
So, if you're an artist looking for advice, mentoring, producing support, introductions or bursaries we're here to help.
