Applications are now open for the Diploma in Creative Producing, a 16 week cloud-based course starting in April 2022
CGO is recruiting the fourth cohort for the Diploma in Creative Producing, a 16 week cloud-based course for aspiring creative producers of theatre and the performing arts locally, nationally, and internationally.
The course starts on 11th April 2022 and finishes on 29th July 2022, with a 3 week break in between.
The DipCP course is cloud-based, run from Scotland, for a limited number of practitioners who will work together and learn from a range of established arts professionals.
Taught by some of the UK and international’s finest producers and arts industry professionals, the 12 weeks are split into two blocks of teaching, seminars, masterclasses & group/individual exercises. The 6 modules will be:
- Your Industry Landscape and Ecology
- Your Producing Spectrum
- Budgeting and Finance
- Marketing and Fundraising
- Your Team and the Law & Business
- Your Future Making Work
The course may be centered around theatre practice, but it is open to creative producers working in all performing arts (including opera, live music, dance, circus, live art, musical theatre and festivals and more). Many producers work across a portfolio of projects which may also encompass visual arts, publishing and film. The course will not focus on these areas, but the skills taught will be transferable.
The course is cloud-based allowing participants to be together at one time on one platform working from their own home/work base. It is hoped that many will meet together ‘on the ground’ away from the cloud.
The total cost is £2,800. We are developing bursaries with charities such as The Production Exchange, so please do express your interest even if you think the fee may be an issue – we’ll find a way to make it work.
Next round of interviews is on 14th December 2021 then 19th January 2022.
Captioning and BSL interpretation can be arranged upon request
