The registration fee includes:


Bursaries will be available for students (at any level), as well as emerging practitioners in their first 5 years of practice and arts workers from the not-for-profit arts sector. Bursaries are awarded by application from 30 September.

Bursary recipients receive free conference registration and are required help out with a few tasks at the conference – checking tickets, social media, set up etc. The work is shared by the bursary recipients and we ask nothing onerous, in fact it is a nice way to support the event and get to know people.

If you receive a bursary and have already paid your registration (e.g. to ensure you get the early bird rate) then we will refund the payment.
