NSDF 20: Arts Council Funding

A total crash-course in how to apply to Arts Council England for money.

What does the Arts Council fund?

What won't they fund?

What questions will they ask?

How do I answer them?

How do I even apply?

Why do I feel so alone?

And much, much more!

In a workshop which promises at least amusing stories, I'll let you in on all the secrets, tips, tricks and short-cuts I've learned for making the case for support to Arts Council England. Total novices welcome.

Also, we might be joined by an actual Arts Council Relationship Manager, which will be nerve-wracking for me but great for you!

David is number 33 on The Stage 100 list of most influential people in theatre, yet struggles to get served in his own theatre bar.
