503Studio Masterclass: Writing Ecologically
How can theatre engage with climate and extinction crises? Together with Steve Waters, you’ll explore shifting the human perspective, engaging with conservation, writing climate change and all that comes with that.
Thanks to DCMS Cultural Recovery Fund and our Share The Drama scheme, we want to make sure those of you who are struggling in the current climate can still take part in our Spring Writers Programme. While we prioritise anyone who is long term unemployed and/or claiming benefits, we’re also offering subsidies if you’re in financial difficulty as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
