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.
