September marks the end of the summer, where we slide off our shades and stock up on stationery ready for the start of a new school year.


The turn of the season can be a great time to refresh and recuperate with learning opportunities. Each year we curate workshops and panels that explore some of the challenges artists and producers are facing – and over the course of September we’ve got a line up of audience development, access workshops and advice sessions that we’re dead excited to share with you.


Workshops available for you:

Audience development for small scale touring.

Tuesday 12th September, 6pm – 7.30pm

Online via Zoom (BSL interpretation available, please email us)

Working with independent artists, festivals and leading cultural organisations, Rachel has connected audiences to a variety cultural experiences from theatre to music, cabaret to comedy, live art to spoken word.
