Boundless are offering four artists (or groups of artists) a bursary of £2500 each to develop new ideas for work that is co-created with young adults around the theme of mental health and emotional wellbeing. The bursary is intended as a cash injection to seed new work and will be enhanced with a package of producing support from Boundless Theatre.
They imagine the final projects will be theatre-based but are keen to support a mixture of forms that can be clearly identified as relevant to their audiences.
Monday 4th March 2019 (12pm)
Next stage: Your application will be read by Boundless Theatre’s Artistic Director, Producer and members of the Advisory Group. They will invite a number of applicants to an initial video interview in March.
The project will culminate with a sharing of the outcomes of all artists, produced by Boundless and scheduled for late 2019. This will be an event for young adult audiences, industry and programmers with a view to getting these ideas further supported through to full development in 2020.
- This opportunity is open to all artists who are enthusiastic about collaborating and workshopping with teenagers and young adults: writers, designers, choreographers, musicians, filmmakers and others.
- Artists should be able to demonstrate they are at an emerging stage of their career and are aged 18-30. These age guidelines are based on a shared generational experience with our audiences.
- They are seeking a group of artists who reflect the diverse audiences we work with and are are keen to support those of interesectional identities and who are less represented.
