As we're an Arts organisation, there is no certainty whatsoever for what may happen to theatres, cinemas, venues and galleries in the coming months. It is becoming apparent though that the way in which we consume art and entertainment will never be the same again.
"At times, this new reality has felt scary and very alien!"
In light of all this, thankfully we now have some clarity. We are delighted to announce that the Black Sheep Collective will receive an Emergency Response Grant from Arts Council England. We are so grateful and thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
The Emergency Response Grant will allow us to continue running our Education and Theatre programs and develop new approaches to suit the current situation. It will ensure that the Black Sheep Collective can continue to engage and inspire our participants to be creative during this strange time.
We will be releasing more information soon about project opportunities and glimpses into the future of the Black Sheep Collective. For now, we are taking this opportunity to learn, grow and develop our practices and ensure the safety and security of the organisation and all our committed customers, participants and supporters.
From everyone at the Black Sheep Collective, we very much appreciate all your support and we cannot wait for the time we can all come together and celebrate this. Watch this space!
Until next time ...

She has established her own style of work nurturing and guiding young talent.
