1-2-1 Creative Support Sessions



Our 1-2-1 support sessions with our Creative Instigators are one-off meetings where you can discuss creative ideas, ask for advice or signposting, or discuss a specific project. Each meeting is 45 minutes long, and our instigators can spend up to 1 hour of additional time on any follow-up work, such as feedback on a funding application or any research that wasn’t possible during the allotted time.

To ensure we can offer these 1-2-1 sessions to as many artists as possible, please only book one session. If you feel you need more ongoing support than these 1-2-1 sessions can offer, you may wish to apply for our mentoring scheme.

We also have 1-2-1 Sessions for Music with Sinead Campbell, Visual Arts with Alison McIntyre, and Playwriting and Theatre-Making with Nicole Joseph

Who are these advice sessions for?

These sessions are open to all artists, creatives and arts professionals living or working in Bradford. Whether you need a listening ear, a critical friend, or just some advice on where to take your work or creative practice next – these sessions are for you!

Book a slot

Please be aware that our in-person timeslots take place at Assembly, Bradford. This venue is only accessible by stairs. If you would like to meet Kirsty in person at an accessible venue, please drop her an email at kirsty@bdproducinghub.co.uk.

Kirsty Taylor

Kirsty Taylor leads the BPH mentoring programme, Play Days, and networking events. She meets with artists regularly to share her knowledge and contacts of creatives and organisations across the district.

Kirsty is a writer and educator inspired by her beloved hometown Bradford. She began writing in her early twenties after finding her passion for storytelling through poetry. She has performed all over the country telling tales about people, class and the realities of Broken Britain. Kirsty was a BBC Verb New Voice in 2017 and was awarded the Apples and Snakes/Jerwood Arts Poetry in Performance in 2020. She is the creator of the imitable Front Room Poetry, which takes nanna-style living rooms and world-class poets to unusual settings such as car parks and housing estates. 

In 2022 Kirsty’s first full-length play Cashy C’s: The Musical, a unique rap and bassline show about poverty and austerity sold out all its shows in under 24 hours, received five-star reviews and was voted in The Guardian Readers’ favourite stage shows of 2022.
