Previous bursary winners Needless Alley Collective said of the scheme:

“Receiving the Nuffield Bursary was an invaluable experience for us as a collective and as individual makers. It allowed us to have the space and resources to explore our practice on a larger scale and lay down the foundations to further our experimental aesthetics without the pressure of churning out a show at the end of it.”
