News alert – 1 December 2022

Provided by the Pleasance Theatre Trust, the Pleasance Generate Fund has been established to help UK-based Black, Asian and ‘Global Majority’ artists bring their work to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The fund is the result of consultation with a cross-section of independent artists, companies and organisations with experience of presenting work at the Fringe and is a response to specific barriers facing Black, Asian and Global Majority artists when presenting work in Festival contexts.

The funder hopes the programme will act as a catalyst for wider activity in the lead up and during the Fringe, bringing together artists and stakeholders to discuss how to make the event a ‘Safe Space for Global Majority’, acknowledging the intersectionality that will be present.

The scheme will provide financing, mentorship and programming opportunities. In 2023, there is £10,000 available, with productions receiving investment of up to £5,000 to support projects that would otherwise not be able to come to the Fringe.

For productions to be considered for funding, at least 50% of the lead creators (which could include the Writer, Director, Producer, Set Designer or makers/devising ensemble) must identify as Black, Asian or Global Majority Artists. Artists must be based in the UK. They must propose a Theatre or Children’s production, with a minimum of two public performances staged by 31 March 2023, that is ready to be presented at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The show does not need to be a world premiere, but it must be an Edinburgh Fringe premiere.

The deadline for applications is 16 January 2023 (10:00 GMT).
