The Tim Gebbels Bursary Fund 2017/18

Extant is launching the Tim Gebbels Bursary Fund which aims to support UK-based visually impaired people to develop their careers in the arts.

In February 2017, Extant lost a dear friend and long-time collaborator, Tim Gebbels. Tim made a huge contribution to our theatre company since we started 20 years ago, and an even bigger contribution to the performing arts sector and its attitude towards visually impaired people.

Extant has set up the Tim Gebbels Bursary Fund so that other visually impaired artists will be able to follow their dreams. 

From February 2018, we will be inviting nominations from and on behalf of UK-based visually impaired artists who want to try something new - perhaps developing a new idea or undertaking some training - and we will award bursaries to as many artists as we are able to. Decisions will be made by an independent panel and announced by the end of March 2018.

Please give what you can to ensure that the next generation of visually impaired artists have the opportunity to make successful careers in the arts.

Thank you for your support.

I didn't know Tim well but I did work with him once and found him to be intelligent, witty and a great performer. I wish I had known him better.

So sad to hear about Tim's passing - far too soon. The bursary is a wonderful tribute to a lovely man.
