Enablers are independent Black arts professionals with at least 2 years of professional experience in any area of the arts, who demonstrate a clear commitment to supporting artists and developing new work, as well as the future of the Black theatre sector. They will also deliver their own projects as independent practitioners during their time as Enablers.

Start date: Late January / Early February 2017

These six forward thinking individuals will work with Eclipse to deliver the Sustained Global programme, a new international artist development programme based in the North of the UK .

Enablers will:

  • Have access to mentoring and professional development opportunities
  • Be hosted by a member of the Sustained Global Consortia, who will provide office space, facilities and resources as well as access to their in-house specialist services.
  • Have a ‘Go see’ budget to enable them to attend key networking events and showcases
  • Have access to decision makers across commissioning panels and in venues
  • Consult with local artists and work with them to bring about real change within the sector

Ultimately, we are looking for visible and influential leaders who care about Black culture, artists and making ambitious new work.
