Doorstep Arts Scratch Bursaries 2024
Doorstep Arts and Villages in Action are offering two bursary opportunities in 2024 to support the development of original theatre for young audiences in Devon. These targeted bursaries aim to deepen the quality of work that is available for families and young audiences in Devon, and to provide progression support to exciting artists regionally who are keen to grow their practice and make work.
