Since launching Beyond in July 2020, 46 Deaf and disabled artists have signed up to the programme. We are delighted that it’s had this response, and that our theatre partners across the North, North East, West of England and the East Midlands have been able to help support a wide range of artists in developing their careers and creating new work. We’d like to thank all our partners, funders and artists who have contributed to making it such a success.
Due to the phenomenal demand for the programme, it has become necessary to pause new applications from 3 February 2021, but we will aim to reopen the programme later in 2021. This is to ensure that all artists on the programme are given access to fair and equal time and resources.
• Identify as Deaf or Disabled or have experienced access barriers to working in theatre
• Have been involved in creating live performance professionally, with or without formal training
• Have an idea for a live performance project you are passionate about taking further

• Would benefit from support by a regional theatre in the North, North East, North West of England or East Midlands.
