Our belief in the importance of theatre, especially in times of difficulty, has kept us creating and connecting from home. In these globally challenging and uncertain times, the mission of Bubble Theatre is more important than ever. Social distancing, isolation and loneliness are just a few of the unsavoury dishes that this pandemic has served up. Whilst we managed to stay together (thanks zoom) the world actually slowed down; giving us time apart to take a breath and reflect. This reflection has ignited some bright new ideas for the Bubble, in the year ahead and beyond! Imagine Bubble but bigger. Imagine Bubble but better. We have a vision and we know exactly what we need to get us there:
This fund aims to support the work of all Bubble projects, as they respond to the next normal and grow to meet the increased demand of our Bubblers.
Why 49k? Because in 2021 Bubble will have been making theatre with and for communities in London for 49 years. We want to celebrate each treasured year a thousand pounds over and look forward to the future. Every contribution, no matter the size, will help us reach our goal.
Here are some of the ways donations support Bubble Theatre to free people’s creative voices and foster a more connected and equal society:
£5 will buy hand sanitiser for one of our Creative Elders’ groups
£50 will cover a week of travel costs for one Young Theatre Maker on our training programme
£500 will put on an online panel discussion for theatre professionals like Black Theatre Matters
£1000 will pay for one child to take part in a term of Speech Bubbles drama intervention sessions
We invite individuals, families, community organisations, patrons, companies, trusts and foundations to join us on our #Bubble49k journey!
Together people make theatre.
