We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for our third Arts Council funded COG residency, which is open to Bristol-based theatre makers.

COG means Creative Opportunity Giver. This residency offers 5 days of free rehearsal space to use however you wish, plus a bursary of £360 to plan, prepare and deliver 2 half day (or equivalent) community outreach workshops, which happen in addition to your 5 days of rehearsals. We are particularly interested in applications for outreach work made for one of the following audiences: early years families, single parents or other disadvantaged adults, adults with a learning disability or older people.

Applications from solo artists or collectives are welcome. Parent theatre-makers are welcome. We will work to meet any access requirements. 

Any queries regarding this residency should sent to bravebolddrama@gmail.com
