Dibby Theatre to offer bursary's

At  Dibby Theatre, they’ve been working hard to develop a brand new strand of talent development and education for LGBTQ+ people in Greater Manchester and beyond.

This Wednesday 27 January they will announce First Dibs – a 14-week course for early-stage career LGBTQ+ playwrights and playmakers in Greater Manchester.

The team at have spent a long time planning this and are really proud that we can offer course participants a bursary of £1k to attend as well as a package of access costs and support.

Easy to apply expression of interest applications open on 1 Feb and close on 15 Feb. 

Video guidance notes will be made available on our website and applicants can also apply via video or voice-note if preferred.

Alongside First Dibs we’re also pleased to be announcing:

Dibby’s Pick and Mix – a series of online workshops with celebrated LGBTQ+ artists

Dibby’s Play-Ground – taster workshops for curious playmakers delivered in partnership with arts venues across Greater Manchester (not LGBTQ+ specific but always radically LGBTQ+ inclusive)
