Ovalhouse, London, Thursday 2 March, 1.30-6.00pm

If you’re an artist, producer or venue involved in making theatre, and you’re looking for partners on a project, Pitch Up is for you!

Pitch Up is a relaxed and welcoming afternoon aimed at making new connections. It is comprised of 6min and 1min pitches from venues and theatre makers, with plenty of time scheduled in for informal conversations. Pitches are delivered to everyone in a spirit of openness and collaboration, and you don’t need to pitch to attend. This Pitch Up will have a particular focus on BAME theatre makers.

Who is Pitching?
The deadline for applications to pitch at this event has now passed.

Pitch Up is timed to coincide with house’s latest seed funding open call; investments of £3000-£8000 to enable BAME theatre makers to explore new ideas in partnership with a regional venue. We hope that some of the partnerships formed at Pitch Up will be among this year’s recipients.
