People with Power or Purses

People with Power or Purses aims to help us all navigate the opportunities for creative’s within the cultural scene across Bradford. Sometimes we need space, advice, or time. Sometimes we just need money to make our ideas happen.

It can be hard to understand what each organisation does, what they might be able to support you with, and how best to approach them. We spoke to the people with power, and/or purses, in order to simplify this process and hopefully help you (and them) save time when trying to get the best support for your idea or project.

Outdoor Arts Guide

Commissioned by Bradford Producing Hub and written by Bev Adams, the Outdoor Arts Guide aims to be a useful resource  (rather than a definitive guide) for artists looking to create work for the outdoors.  It provides a brief introduction to the many types of work created for the outdoors and covers the practicalities of fundraising, creating a show, working with artists and audiences, touring and compliance.

Make Work 2020

When we launched Make Work 2020, our R&D and grants programme for new live work we certainly couldn’t have anticipated our 9 funded artists and companies would be attempting to bring their plans to life during a global pandemic and a time of crisis for the arts sector.

It is testament to every MW2020 artist that they found creative ways to navigate the many challenges thrown at them to create new performance work. From spectacular outdoor dance performance and giant puppets to new script and theatre work profiling hidden stories, from fledging artists to experienced companies Make Work 2020 has brought exciting new work to Bradford and beyond.
