no strings attached is a grant scheme to help young people make their first piece of performance.Grants of between £500 and £1,000 are available to young people from across the south east region. The grant is for anyone aged between 18 and 25 who hasn’t previously received a grant for their work.

In October 2017 we ran a pitching day for artists to come and share their ideas with us and as ever it was a real privilege to hear from such ambitious, committed and passionate young makers!

We are pleased to announce the successful artists and companies to be awarded a grant for 2017-18 are as follows:

Alice Guile

Hooked Theatre

Lovehart Productions

Iona McTaggart

Monument Theatre Company

Harriet Porter

Each will be working on developing their individual ideas and we wish them all every success.
