“It shows what the arts can do for a city, with events exploring and building empathy among audiences” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

If you love what we do, we’d love your help.

And if you support us today, we can more than double your gift with a match from Arts Council England.

Be part of the future of bold, radical artistic experimentation and help us support some of the most exciting emerging artists from the UK and around the world.

IBT is one of the world’s leading festivals of genre-defying performance. We’ve been the birth-place of the careers of some of the most dynamic artists and producers since we started in 2001.

Our New Bloods programme creates a space for artists and professionals to take risks; we offer residencies, commissions and opportunities to develop new ideas. Through New Bloods we support young artists and producers who reflect the world in which we live.

It’s a programme that actively changes who gets to make and deliver great new performance, and who gets to experience it.

We’re looking for donors to give as little as £10 to support the next generation of New Bloods (and a £10 gift is worth £25 to us with Gift Aid and through the Arts Council’s matching scheme).

Every donation is welcomed. We’d love it if you can give what you can afford and we can more than double this through our fantastic partnership with Arts Council England.


The New Bloods programme supports:
•bursaries for emerging artists and opportunities to show their work to audiences and professionals.
•commissioning, presentation and paid internship opportunities for young professionals from all walks of life.
•a chance to tour work across the UK and around the world.
•a prize for up to three of the UK’s most promising students of contemporary performance.


In return we can give you:
•A warm feeling knowing you’re supporting the next generation of brilliant artists from across the UK and around the world
•Invitations to the New Bloods programme of work in each festival
•Your name on printed materials and our website
•Our heartfelt thanks
