Fierce FWD

Fierce FWD

Fierce FWD is a development programme for emerging artists living or working in or originally from the West Midlands. The scheme is aimed at those developing performance and Live Art. Fierce FWD is generously supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

Each of the FWD artists receive a £500 micro bursary to start to develop a new project. They might want to spend it on materials, studio time a research trip or something else entirely. Furthermore, over the course of the next six months the Fierce FWD artists will undertake a number of research trips to Live Art events around the UK including SPILL Festival of Performance, In Between Time: Bristol International Festival, Steakhouse Live and Arika.

We are also delighted to announce a new collaboration with Birmingham Repertory Theatre who we’ll be working with to deliver a programme of talks and workshops for the Fierce FWD artists and the participants of the Theatre Makers strand of their own Rep Foundry development programme.
