So lots of changes in 2021 in my personal life which are yet to settle but also everyone I know in the Arts has found the last 12 months really tough. I’ve been lucky with managing to sustain creativity through Audiobooks and also some Roleplay Companies have gone online, so I’ve picked up some things there. But I’m missing Theatre very much so to update you on where I am with funding for my one woman show: The second submission for ACE funding for Nellie & Me was also not successful. So I re-looked at it and my good friend and mentor Kate Bannister helped me re-jig it, we re-worded the application to make the project as clear as we could and added some extra elements to bring in other collaborators. We are intertwining Opera, Theatre, Digital and Film Media and I’m hoping this will make the project viable this time….! The applications are taking ten weeks to be decided on (rather than six last time) so we have a little longer to wait, but hopefully by the end of April there might be news!
