AlterEgo Creative Solutions believe in the power of theatre and stories to help create social change.  Our ‘Incubator Bursary’ was created to help nurture and support the next generation of change-maker theatre pracitioners.


The £500 bursary is available to emerging practitioners or small-scale theatre companies that would benefit from a little financial support towards putting on a play that engages with social themes at a fringe or small-scale venue in the UK.


the 2022 recipient of the ‘Incubator Bursary’, were the phenominal Moonloaf, who  used the bursary towards the costs of their run of ‘Lucinda Spragg : An Evening With‘, at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
