Funding & Development Opportunities For Theatre Artists

Like magpies, we’ve nabbed links and information from e-shots, tweets and mailouts about funding and creative opportunities for theatre artists. We’ve collated them here and will update opportunities as they come in. If you have a funding opportunity you’d like us to include, give us a shout at tomorrow@thisispopbaby.com.
