#JMK Space: Arts Council Project Funding with David Byrne

Arts Council England Project Funding

David Byrne

In a drastically changed/changing landscape, and time of real uncertainty for directors and theatre makers, we have asked David Byrne, Artistic Director of the New Diorama Theatre, to run this session on how to apply for Funding, including Project Grant funding from Arts Council England.

David will talk about his own successful (and less successful!!) funding bids, walk us through the murky world of filling in those mind-bending forms and questions, and there will be plenty of time for questions from those attending.

David Byrne is a British playwright and the artistic director of the New Diorama Theatre in Camden, London. Byrne has also written for radio and television. Byrne has won the Writers' Guild of Great Britain and the List Awards for Drama, a Les Enfants Terribles Prize and the London Off West End award for Best Artistic Director. Byrne's adaptation of Down and Out in Paris and London sold out at the Edinburgh Festival in 2015 and received multiple four and five star reviews before transferring to London. The New Diorama Theatre, under Byrne's artistic directorship, has won two Empty Space Peter Brook Awards.
