Sustained Theatre – a network of entrepreneurial Black, Asian and minority ethnic artists has called for innovative partnership proposals from Yorkshire for a new capital project.
Sustained Theatre is an Arts Council funded initiative that arose out of Baroness Lola Young's 'Whose Theatre?' report It makes a number of recommendations to ensure the further development and long-term success of Black, Asian and minority ethnic theatre.
The artists are looking for partners around the country to create a network of spaces that enables the development of work by Black, Asian and minority ethnic artists.
The 'Making Spaces' project is one of Sustained Theatre's five key work streams and is intended to address the need to create access to spaces for the Sector to develop work.
George Matheson, Yorkshire representative of Sustained Theatre, welcomes the move, 'The partnership call is a fantastic opportunity to provide creative space across Yorkshire for our members to develop as artists. The spaces we choose might be arts based already but they could equally be from the education, voluntary or commercial sectors. The possibilities are endless. Our driving force is simply to make sure that all of our members have the opportunity to access first class, fit for purpose facilities and resources.'
Sustained Theatre has issued a Call for Partners to assemble a national network of spaces for the Sector. Download the proposal and read more about it here
The deadline for responses is 29 March.
