Eventotron is committed to opening doors in the Arts Industry - making it easier to navigate and more affordable. We are delighted to offer the first in our series of bursaries designed to help emerging and professional artists take their work to the next level.
Two companies will receive:
- £500 towards their production costs.
- A mentoring session with an industry professional. We’ll work with you to find the most appropriate person.
- Promotion in Eventotron - bring your show to the attention of over 45,000 users, including festival and venue managers worldwide.
Examples of where we hope to help:
- A theatre production that wants to hire a professional sound designer.
- A dance company looking for paid PR.
- A sketch show looking to incorporate some AV.
- A stand-up who needs professional photography.
- Your show must be going ahead regardless of being awarded a bursary.
- Your Brighton Fringe registration must be finalised and paid for on or before 9 January 2020.
- Your Eventotron Bursary registration must be completed by 9 January 2020
- You must be committed to staging your event to a professional level.
The winners will be filtered for eligibility before being passed on to an independent panel. Their first priority will be to find the artist or producer who will get most value from the award. Other factors considered will be the creation of new work and the length of your run at Brighton Fringe 2020. The winners will be anounced in early February 2020.
Bursary funds will be released to the successful companies in early April 2020, on presentation of relevant invoices.
The winning companies agree to credit the Eventotron Bursary in all printed and online promotion of the event, where practical, for 12 months from the date of the award. The credit should be a small logo supplied by Eventotron and/or the text "Supported by an Eventotron Bursary".
We hope to bring the Eventotron Bursary scheme to other festivals in the near future. Keep an eye on the Festivals section of Eventotron for announcements.
