Workshops & Guest Surgeries

ASP - Workshops

The Artist Support Programme will provide a busy programme of 1-2-1 Producing and Dramaturgy Surgeries and, while our team are experienced, we know we don’t have all the answers. This is where our Workshops and Guest Surgeries come in!

Each month we will welcome a creative trailblazer or industry leader to join us  to provide an online workshop, followed by a day of 1-2-1 surgery sessions, focusing on a specific topic or challenge that the sector is facing. This will provide an opportunity for you to explore a certain area in more detail and get answers from those in the know.

The programme of events will be built in direct response to the frequently asked questions or areas of concern that come up during the 1-2-1's so it will reflect what YOU want to hear more about.

All events will have live BSL interpretation and after the event a recording with Closed Captions will be made available on our Resources page!

Needing some advice on touring your production in the time of a pandemic and post-brexit?

Then join Jo Crowley for her workshop Touring in the time of Brexit. 

Touring internationally in a time of pandemic and post the U.K's departure from the EU can be challenging and at times can feel overwhelming.  But it is possible! From carnets to cabotage, taxes to visas this session will explore practical approaches for touring to the EU following Brexit for independent artists and companies. 

Jo's workshop will include plenty of time for questions and discussion. If there are more things that you would like to explore and get some advice on, Jo will be offering out 1-2-1 surgeries on the 13th October from 09:00 - 13:00. Information on how to book will be provided at the workshop.
