Often our projects reject traditional definitions of taste, culture and art in order to create a space for social change. These marginal and radical practices are joyful, sorrowful, painful and soulful, but always impactful and powerful. Here are some of our most recent projects and collaborations:
mentoring for producers
Producing can be a lonely affair and sometimes you just want someone to check in with. We've mentored producers at various stages of their career and like to build a relationship that has space for skill sharing, advice, venting, practical tools and pastoral support.
If you'd be interested in receiving mentoring from us, whether a handful of sessions or something longer-term, get in touch and we can talk about what you'd like to achieve and build a programme together.
We have a sliding scale fee structure for mentoring, but this might be something to include in a DYCP application or as part of a Project Grant you are working on.
access support for application writing
We have a very strong track record of writing funding applications, in particular Arts Council England Project Grants and DYCP applications.
If you are neurodiverse/disabled and want to apply, ACE will pay us to support you - at no cost to you. If you'd like to work with us in this capacity, please drop us an email and we can get in touch with ACE together.
If you would like support on application writing for other reasons, please get in touch and we can talk about consultation/bid writing rates.
Huge thank you for making the process so positive, simple, responsive and calm and empowering. It's been a completely different experience to trying navigate it without support, which I just found utterly dismal and impossible. I'm so grateful for all your support, for your enthusiasm and for your dedication to really digging into the project and understanding what I want to do and why.
one-to-one advisories and consultation
We offer advisories and consultation for:
- artists at any career stage working in performance, live art, experimental theatre and dance
- strategic, business and financial planning for independent artists and small organisations
- fundraising and application writing
- policy creation, including safeguarding and safe space policies.
We have a sliding scale fee structure, so get in touch and we can make something work.
I can’t thank you enough for your immense help...I can’t stress enough how insightful your guidance was. I’m certain that that short session with you, and your time before was central to us getting that funding and therefore in making this important event happen for the people involved and for our community.
