Space Six and The Empty Space are both committed to supporting performing artists in the North East of England to create work and develop sustainable livelihoods. They have teamed up to create SPACE/TIME, a bursary providing free rehearsal space, the funds to pay for artists’ time whilst they use it, and mentoring from The Empty Space.
From September 2017 to September 2018 Space Six has donated one pound from every hour of rehearsal room hire to build the SPACE/TIME fund. This was totaled in September 2018, and now SPACE/TIME is open for applications!
Every artist, company and organisation that booked rehearsal rooms at Space Six between 9am and 7.30pm Monday –Friday, over the past year has been directly contributing towards, paying artists fairly and supporting the artistic development in the North East of England.
