Research commission: mapping provision and practice in England’s Theatre for Young Audiences sector that contributes to the Creative Case for Diversity

Theatre for Young Audiences UK (TYA) is the UK centre of the International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People – ASSITEJ.

Throughout 2017 TYA will seek to address a question fundamental to our work and the development of theatre for younger audiences: What do we need to put in place to ensure theatre for children, young people and families is reflective of the society we live in today?

We are looking to commission a researcher to map current provision and practice in England in relation to The Creative Case. In this stage of the research we are focusing particularly on work made by BAME and Disabled artists. The research will be used as a baseline understanding for the sector, to inform future commissions and programming across the TYA network in the future.

These bursaries are kindly supplied by Arts Council England. We welcome applications from researchers, practitioners, administrators and companies working or living in England.
