Free Masterclass On Producing Arts Projects In Lockdown, Naked Frank Theatre (Ltd)


All your burning questions answered in this two hour masterclass on how to produce successful arts projects in lockdown.

This year has been particularly stagnant for our industry, and while the nation sat back in lockdown to enjoy boxset reruns, the actual production of new work ground to a holt. Despite the restrictions of a global pandemic, some artists were still able to thrive within their craft by responding positively to the challenges that COVID-19 posed and finding new and innovative ways to play, create, and construct their art in a safe way. We are one of those companies! Throughout the global pandemic we have been lucky enough to continue doing what we love, producing theatre, film and hosting events throughout all three of the national lockdowns. AND, we didn’t need a multi-million pound budget to do it. Just hard work, flexible thinking, and the determination to succeed. Now we want to pass our methods, techniques, and practices on to you! We recognise that this is a very difficult time for young creatives to kick start their careers and appreciate the need for inclusive opportunities that can support the arts industry to survive for long enough that new talent is able to thrive and make their mark.

Sessions will include;

- An introduction to the company, what we do, and how we usually work.

- Exclusive viewing of our latest site-specific production of theatre captured for film.

- The DOs and DON’Ts of producing art within a pandemic.

- Advice on funding and utilising what you already have.

- Tips on how to sell your ideas to potential partners/collaborators/producers/investors.

- Information on safety requirements and legal practices whilst working throughout COVID-19.

- A Q&A to answer your personalised questions.

Join in on 26th March @7pm for our public masterclass!
