The North East Artist Development Network is inviting applications from artists of colour, disabled artists and artists who identify as LGBTQ who are creating new dance and theatre work for a paid residency as part of the Network’s programme of activities. The residencies are designed to support artists and companies at the earliest stages of developing their work, providing an opportunity to work up an idea, with the support of a venue, to the point where is it ‘commission ready’ i.e. in a position to seek funding or other support to realise the work.
Each residency offers:
- Up to £2,000 financial support
- A week’s space for research and development
- An opportunity to meet the programmer and other venue staff
- Opportunity to show work at a regional scratch event
- A presentation slot at Meet the Programmers
There are two residencies available which must take place between Jan – March 2019.
Each selected artist or company will be paired up with a steering group member who will support the artist to maximise the benefits of the residency, meeting them prior to and following the residency week, as well as assisting with venue liaison. The host venue will be identified in terms of best fit for the work, taking into account opportunities to see new relationships, location and access requirements.
