The BBC Performing Arts Fund has announced that its Theatre Fellowships grants programme is open for applications. Theatre Fellowships offer bespoke placements within existing organisations and is designed to support individuals through the early stages of their theatre making careers.  Through this scheme, the Performing Arts Fund hopes to increase the Fellows’ skills through training and development opportunities tailored to the individual, to raise their aspirations, and to encourage their creativity.  Rather than awarding grants directly to individuals themselves, the Fund is looking for applications from theatre companies, organisations, venues and festivals from across the UK to host a fellow.

The closing date for applications is the 22nd July 2013. Read more at:
