New Encounters is a joint initiative by Sunderland Culture and Sunderland Black Minority Ethnic Network offering 3 bursaries of £500 each to BAME performing artists to create or develop their work in 2021. An additional £250 is available for artistic mentoring for the successful candidates to support and advise their artistic practise.
The bursaries are available to actors, dancers, musicians, spoken word or circus artists or group of artists who can demonstrate strong links with Sunderland. The bursaries are to help get a performance idea started or to develop artistic practice?
