Tamasha Associate Companies 2019 

Applications are now closed for emerging BAME-led theatre companies to apply to become a Tamasha Associate Company in 2019. Do watch this space for upcoming opportunities.

Becoming a Tamasha Associate Company is an informal one-year attachment, during which you will benefit from the professional expertise of our core team, our office space, and our industry connections to guide you on your professional development as an organisation.

The package of support you'll receive is bespoke to each company’s needs, but may include advice on fundraising, marketing, dramaturgy, budgeting, or finding venues and appropriate collaborators.

Towards the end of the year, Tamasha dedicates one of its Scratch Nights to showcase works-in-progress from each Associate Company to an audience of public and industry professionals.

Please note that all interested companies will need to be Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) led, where at least 50% of their core creatives identifying as artists of colour. This will also need to be reflected in the work each company intends to produce.

Find out more at our next Tamasha Scratch Night - to be announced soon!
