AMPLIFY is our career development scheme that supports freelancers from the Global Majority to develop skills in production and/or technical theatre. OThe scheme consists of paid mentoring and workplace training opportunities in a range of disciplines that include but are not limited to: sound, lighting, stage management, production management, producing, construction, and any other technical or related areas.
AMPLIFY is bespoke, authentic and responsive to the needs of participants, developing their skills in incremental steps, to a time frame and brief designed by them. Participants will be supported by the mentors who form part of our AMPLIFY community - this is an evolving cohort of sector support organisations, alumni, Associate Artists and leading industry experts.
There are two entry points to the programme:
CAPSULE BURSARIES: A 'capsule' mentoring session offering one or two hours of time with a selected mentor to start a new process of career development or unlock a specific challenge. Participant fee: £50
STEP CHANGE BURSARIES: A more structured programme helping to overcome a career step change, with mentoring sessions offered over a longer timeframe. Participant fee: £150
AMPLIFY alumni who have progressed through stages 1 or 2 will be eligible for:
WORKPLACE EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING: Paid work-based placements on Tangle's touring shows
ONGOING SUPPORT THROUGH THE AMPLIFY COMMUNITY: Opportunity for all beneficiaries to take part in regular meetings, meet mentors, peers and industry colleagues and receive further mentoring and advice when needed
There is no deadline. This is an ongoing scheme.
