Our support contributes to the continuity of the programme as it undergoes a period of change in its funding structure. It goes in part towards the introduction of a new strand of the programme developed in response to the challenges faced by producers based in the South West of England. Four new producing bursaries enable producers to work on the programme with the Ferment artists. Ferment is also working with 19 artists through a series of artist retreats and bringing about the research and development stage of six commissions, two of which it is supporting to full production.
