Opportunities: Our Pick of the Week – Project 2036 at the Bush Theatre

Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.

This week’s pick: Project 2036 at the Bush Theatre

Description: is a three year programme that will offer a Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) playwright, director and producer a £10,000 bursary each year, generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The project name is inspired by the fact that it’s projected that by 2036, half of the UK’s population will be dual heritage.

What’s so great about it?  Project 2036 provides the funding and artistic support to ensure that the stories we’re hearing onstage match the changing face of Britain. In a three stage process, theatremakers will be invited to shadow a mentor, develop artistic work, and share it in the Bush’s studio space. This is an incredible opportunity for diverse artists to develop new work and network – both with their peers and within the industry – so be sure to get your application in by 6 June if you’d like to take part!
