Slate - Supporting Black Artists

Live Theatre supports Slate, a new international programme from Sheffield-based Eclipse Theatre that supports Black independent artists in northern England by increasing access to local, national and international networks.

  • Training
  • Commissions
  • Play funding pots
  • Residencies
  • Retreats
  • Group workshops
  • Production support
  • Marketing / PR

Slate is a consortium of 11 organisations: ARC Stockton, Hull Truck, Oxford Playhouse, the British Council, Bradford City Council, York Theatre Royal, Pilot Theatre, Live Theatre, Unity Theatre, HOME MCR, Forced Entertainment and East St Arts.
