Z-arts Artists Lab
10th – 14th July 2017
Z-arts and STUN want to encourage more artists from different cultural backgrounds or artists with disabilities to consider making work for children and young people, with an aim of increasing diverse representation onstage in children’s theatre.
So, we are looking for artists who are interested in taking part in a training week ‘artists lab’ to explore ideas of making work for children and young audiences.
Each day will be led by a diversity focused theatre maker who is experienced in making theatre for young audiences (including Benji Reid, Keith Saha from 20 Stories High, Nina Hajiyanni from Action Transport Theatre) but there will also be plenty of time to explore your own ideas.
You might be an emerging artist or an experienced artist who is interested in exploring making work for a new audience.
You will be encouraged to attend the whole week, to explore your ideas and be supported to identify next steps to make your ideas a reality, including how to look for funding or partnerships.
This is an expenses only training opportunity. Successful applicants will receive £150 expenses for the week, plus lunch.
To apply, please send your cv and a short covering letter saying why you want to take part and what you would hope to achieve by the end of the week to email@example.com
Deadline: 12pm Friday 30th June
