Project 2036 is the result of a generous grant from the Leverhulme Trust, this has enabled the Bush Theatre to invite BAMER (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee) associate artists to apply for nine – one-year-long – bursaries of £10,000 each.
Every year, for three years, a BAMER playwright, director and producer will each receive a bursary of £10,000. As well as financial support, they will be assigned a mentor, and experience the day-to-day workings of a modern theatre. Under the guidance of their mentor, the producer will work as Assistant Producer on a Bush Theatre production on which the director will be Assistant Director. The playwright will be given time to write their own piece of work with extensive dramaturgical support. At the end of the three-month placement, the artists will be invited to programme, develop, produce and showcase their own mini-season in the Bush Theatre’s new Studio, financed by the Bush Theatre.
