Boho Arts is in a period of change and growth. We’d like to expand our network of talented, skilled and experienced artists and teaching practitioners as we look to develop and diversify our offering with the purpose of creating more opportunities for the public to engage with and take part in the arts at a grassroots level.
Let us introduce ourselves.
We’re Bev Fox and Ian McLaughlin, the co-artistic directors of Boho Arts. We’ve worked together in the performing arts for over 30 years as performers, teachers, musicians, directors and producers, on stage, film, TV and radio.
We founded Boho Arts to build on the community work we’ve done in the Northeast for the last 2 decades to increase opportunities for people to participate in the arts, because we feel the arts bring meaning and fulfilment to people’s lives, especially by taking part. We do this in various ways, through School of Improv, the events and projects we produce independently or with project partners, and in the future, Boho Arts’ inclusive creative arts venue will open up many more doors to many more people.
Introduce yourself to us
If you can offer talent, skills and experience as a professional artist and/or as a creative teaching practitioner, share in our vision, mission and values, and would like to work with Boho Arts in the future, introduce yourself.
So, what type of things are we looking for? Here are some examples, but we’re by no means limited to these …
For School of Improv, we’d like to hear from you if you have experience in teaching improvisation, clowning, movement, Meisner, writing, stand-up, or there may be theatrical styles or genres in your wheelhouse that will interest our ever-growing community of participants.
For Sunday Gatherings, we are looking for guest speakers who can talk on arts, heritage, science and culture topics, for arts and crafts facilitators who can lead short, safe and simple activities for all ages, and for musicians to play.
For the future venue, the world is your oyster. We’d love to know what kind of workshops, activities, shows or events you could bring to the space.
Tell us about you and your practice. Include the types of groups, communities and age range of people you’ve worked with, provide your full contact details, any access needs you may have, and (if appropriate to your practice), if you have DBS and safeguarding certificates in place.
We’ll get back to let you know we’ve received your message, and keep your information on file (for office use only) until the right opportunity comes along.
Ways to get in touch
It's easiest to write to us by email, but if you prefer you can email a video or audio recording about yourself instead.
You can also request a callback or our postal address by dropping us a quick email first.
If you check out our upcoming events, you could come say hello in person at a show, or arrange to meet us before one of our School of Improv classes.
