Theatre Makers: ineligible and unsuccessful

<<< UPDATE 21 JULY >>>
All 500 bags have now been sent out, but I'm keeping the appeal open for donations as I have a lot of people still on the waiting list.
Thank you to everyone who has donated. Very best wishes, Bethany
<<< THANK YOU >>>

The theatre + performance industry has been severely affected by coronavirus. Many theatre makers + theatre workers have been left stranded without employment + without financial support.

I've designed a Terrible Rage black canvas tote bag inspired by the line in Escaped Alone, Caryl Churchill, 2016 (with permission of Caryl and her publisher, Nick Hern Books). Seemed apt on a weekend where a government advisor 'escaped alone' across the country making a mockery of the sacrifices, both personal + professional we've all made over the last few months.

This fund aims to provide micro-grants of £200 to any individual maker or worker in live performance who has been:

- ineligible for the Self Employed scheme e.g. just graduated
- unsuccessful in their ACE Emergency Funding application

Priority will be given to those who haven't been able to access either of these funds. There is no age/geographic limitation to this fund. It's just a simple gesture, a helping hand to cover bills or essential costs during this difficult time.

ALL 500 BAGS HAVE NOW BEEN POSTED OUT BUT YOU CAN STILL DONATE TO THE FUND
