Following the successful collaboration between leading performing arts organisations and Tonic in the 2014 and 2016 Advance programmes, Tonic presents the Advance Network – A four-year programme of activities, training, provocation and support led by the team at Tonic.
Bringing together staff members from 16 prolific performing arts organisations across England, the Network is designed to enhance each organisation’s work on increasing opportunities for, and representation of women over the course of the 2018 – 2022 National Portfolio cycle.
Advance is a six-month programme designed and led by Tonic Theatre. Bringing together cohorts of leading performing arts organisations, we support them to understand the root causes behind gender imbalances within their own companies and art forms, and provide them with the tools by which they can achieve meaningful change. Read about Advance in the Guardian print and Guardian online or find out more at the Advance website.
