1-2-1 Playwriting and Theatre-Making 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. To make the best use of this opportunity, it would help if you can prepare some specific questions, and be ready to take ownership of what happens after the session.

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. Please ensure you are on time and attend your meeting, or inform our instigators if you need to rearrange.

To ensure we can offer these 1-2-1 sessions to as many artists as possible, please only book one session unless you have something new or very different you wish to discuss. 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.

Nicole specialises in Playwriting and theatre-making. We also have 1-2-1 Sessions for Music with Sinead Campbell, Visual Arts with Alison McIntyre, and poetry and all other creative projects with Kirsty Taylor

Who are these advice sessions for?

These sessions are open to all artists 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!

Nicole has led the Empowered programme for training future leaders from marginalised identities, the Series of Care sessions for wellbeing and training around artistic development and careers, and project-managed the Make The Change event, which included commissioning multi-artform projects and artists and delivering a large-scale event which celebrated the Empowered programme and artists.
