2 October 2019
Public Engagement - funding
The TORCH Theatres Seed Fund 2019/2020 is now open for applications!
This year there will be two deadlines, with up to £5,000 available at each from a total pot of £10,000. The first deadline is 12 noon, Thursday 24th October, and the second 12 noon, Thursday 21st November. All funding must be spent by 31 July 2020.
Grants of up to £3,000 per application are available to enable Oxford University researchers to develop and deliver collaborative projects with Oxfordshire theatres and theatre-makers. These projects can be stand-alone, or used as proof-of-concept for larger-scale projects and funding applications. Please see this page for more information, and feel free to contact me with any questions (Hannah.firstname.lastname@example.org). Last year’s Seed Fund winners can be found here.

This innovative workshop will give you the skills and inspiration to design, propose and secure funding for your own projects to collaborate with theatres.
TORCH is collaborating with Pop Up Projects and local youth groups to deliver two one-day workshops for young people. Led by Sudha Bhuchar, an experienced actor, playwright and artistic director, your role will be to work with the attendees and help them to produce a short piece of writing for the stage based on, or in response to, their own life experiences.
