Working in the Arts Workshops: Funding and Money

Venue: Online

A series of three lunchtime workshops with academic, writer and dramaturg Lewis Church.

What does it mean to work in theatre and performance today? How do you take your first steps after graduation? Designed for Birkbeck students but open to all, these workshops provide a space to start to answer these questions by helping you develop your own strategy for professional development.
Each online workshop will be focused on practicalities and useful resources and be centred around an open discussion of the challenges and opportunities of a career in the arts today.

In this workshop we will discuss the important issue of money in the UK performing arts sector. This will include an outline of funding structures and guidance on applying for grants, discussion around developing a career as a freelancer and consideration of the kinds of jobs that exist both onstage and off.
