The Jerwood Foundation are trying to find out how much it costs to get started in the arts and creative sector, looking at the past 10 years.

They've put together a super short and simple questionnaire (it to me literally 1 min) -

Is anyone in Britain pioneering new theatre practice?

Comment by Fio on September 13, 2016 at 12:30


As part of our production of The Mountaintop @ The Other Room we are looking to programme two Speak Easy Events on 8th and 15th October. 

What is a Speak Easy Event? 

Fio want to bring people together in a conversation about race, equality and poverty in 2016. Looking at the themes of The Mountaintop. Asking what has changed since the death of Martin Luther King?

We will be working with Black History Month Wales, Stand Upto Racism and other organisations to programme two event days including speeches, discussions, music, poetry and more. 

We are looking for people who are interested, inspired and motivated by issues around racism, poverty and equality.

Hi All, 

Have a performance this Friday the 10th at Carnegie House, Bridgend,  7-8.30 if you can come along,

Its based on true historical account from my Grandfathers memoirs of his time flying the Lancaster Bombers.

Hi Lisa, 

I’m really interested in coming along to this as I’m just trying to re-establish links with other creatives in my home town of Cardiff, despite currently living in Gloucester. I’m a playwright, and wondered what the day involves, and what I’d need to bring?

Can you let me know ASAP then if it sounds like something I’d find useful, and if I think I can bring something to the day I’ll be very happy to attend.
