Clearcut – Producer support

We know this is an unusual and unsettling time.

We are currently planning ways to support our fellow producers, venues, festivals and artists to get through and make the best of this challenging time. 

We are very grateful to Arts Council England for an Emergency Response Fund grant which we received in March 2020. This will enable us to provide online advice and training sessions, in-depth development and planning work with the artists we already have a relationship with but also to reach out to new artists and producers. 

We are running a series of webinars. They will be friendly and open and specially designed to support younger or new Producers, artists who self-produce or those wanting to refresh their skills.
