The Lyric Hammersmith have launched a brand new programme offering free space, bespoke Lyric staff support and resources for West London theatre companies led by ethnically diverse artists and theatre makers.
The programme provides one-week of free space in the Lyric Studio, advice sessions with the Lyric team (covering areas including artistic, producing, fundraising, technical, production management or marketing), technical support and access to office resources such as printing, scanning and desk space including computer access.
Lyric Artistic Residencies are suitable for theatre companies who have an idea they want to develop and would benefit from some time in a theatrical space which could be used for various activities such as script development, rehearsals, research and development, workshops, explorations and filming. Activity can be theatre, devised work, cross art-forms but needs to have live performance at the heart of the project.
There are six week-long residencies (Monday to Friday) available in total from the week commencing 06 September 2021 to the week commencing 18 October 2021.
This opportunity is for artists who are from the African and Caribbean Diasporas, South Asian, East Asian, Southeast Asian, North African, Middle Eastern, Latinx, Pacific Islander, Indigenous, Native American or those of ethnically mixed heritages; and theatre companies who are led by ethnically diverse artists who live or work in West London. Eligible boroughs are Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond upon Thames, Westminster and Wandsworth.
Monday 23 August at 12pm.
Applications will be responded to by Friday 27 August.
