What is it for? 

Activities, training or support that will help you develop or progress your creative ambitions in the live arts sector. Things like:
• Advice and guidance: like artistic development, audience development, dramaturgy, fundraising, organisational development, tour booking, music marketing and PR focusing on the live sector or technical guidance.

• Training and events: like fees for a short course, a specific series of lessons, a development session, attending a masterclass, event or conference. Going places: travel costs for attending networking events, music industry showcases, pitching events or meetings with potential partners and venues.

•Learning from others: hiring an expert to help you develop the live aspects of your career: like guidance on touring, engaging audiences & marketing yourself while on the road. For example: spending time with a producer or songwriter to develop your sound as a musician, or to test out your creative ideas in a particular area.

• Personal development: Your time and costs, so you can develop your live art practice.Please note Spare Bob is not a fund to pay someone to do a job for you, it is to help you develop your skills, learning or your ideas in a specific area of your development in a live arts career.
