Applications are now open for the third year of the ROH Links scheme, a skills sharing and capacity building programme offered to small and medium-sized performing arts organizations across the UK.

Three organizations are invited to join the programme each year for a period of up to two years. During this time, they are assigned an ROH Partner from within the ROH Executive Team to discuss their strengths and development needs. Support is also provided in the form of 1:1 meetings with senior ROH staff, shadowing opportunities, site visits and conference calls for up to 20 hours per year combined.

'Taking on ROH advice, we launched a new individual giving scheme in spring 2014 and we are now exceeding our fundraising targets in this area', says Alison Porter, General Manager of Mahogany Opera Group, who joined the programme in 2012/13.

Other organizations who participated in 2012/13, the pilot year of the programme, included Balbir Singh Dance Company and Pavilion Dance South West.

Stopgap Dance Company, The Garage and Mid Wales Opera were invited to join the following year.

The programme is open to professional opera, theatre, ballet or dance organizations, orchestras, choirs, arts venues, digital companies, and learning and participation organizations in the arts sector, from any geographical or community background.

Find out more about the ROH Links programme and how to apply. The closing date is 5pm on Tuesday 24 February.
