It feels as if the world has turned upside down with the Covid-19 pandemic. All Extraordinary Bodies’ projects and touring productions involving direct contact are now postponed. But, we are still here, still creating, still being extraordinary.
Right now, we are:
- Looking after our family of artists, support workers and production staff.
- Joining in national conversations about emergency funding and the future of circus and making sure that freelance artists are part of the conversation.
- Available to support you with grant applications, and training in fundraising and practical access. If you need help please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Making a new film work with our company of artists, linked to What am I Worth?
Moving forward, we will:
- fundraise, plan and offer our support to others in our communities.
- Share our existing films, music and writing online with our partners
- Offer support and solidarity to freelance artists and support workers.
- Work out with you how to make sure that our future together is good.
