> Calling all theatre performers...
Ignite Somerset is a brand new three year programme
supported by Arts Council England and delivered by
Somerset Film. It is dedicated to enabling arts makers and audiences in Somerset harness the new opportunities
afforded through digital technology to create and
experience greater artistic excellence and innovation.
Over the next three years Somerset Film and the team at
The Engine Room, our community media centre, will bring
their skills and experience to support artists from six
genres – theatre, literature, music, visual arts, dance and
combined arts. We’re offering dedicated digital training
and surgeries across the county and we’ll build shared
Over each six-month period we’ll dedicate our resources to
a different art form – from June to September we’ll focus
on theatre and performance. If you’re an actor, performer
or work backstage, or if you’re part of a carnival team or
amateur society, Ignite Somerset can help you expand your knowledge and skill.
We kick off with an introductory information session for all interested theatre and performance practitioners on
Monday 11 June at The Engine Room 1.00 > 8.00pm.
Drop by for all or part of the session to let us know how we
can help you achieve your digital aspirations and to register
