Thanks to the generous support of HQ Theatres, Theatre’s Trust are delighted to be able to offer a limited number of free places at their conference for freelancers, early career professionals and students.

The theme of this year’s conference is Making Theatre Sustainable, a vital conversation that they want a wide range of delegates to be able to participate in.

The bursary scheme in association with HQ Theatres, will be open to emerging artists, early career professionals, freelancers and representatives from small / unfunded theatre organisations, as well to students on relevant higher education courses.

”We hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be an inspiring day with lively debate and great networking opportunities.”
