Bernie Grant Arts Centre: temporary residence

  • Deadline:
    Oct. 8, 2007, 8:35 a.m.

Temporary residence is Bernie Grant Arts Centre's artist in residence programme for emerging* creative practitioners. We're working with State of Emergency to provide three choreographers and three digital media artists (visual/music/multi-media) from diverse cultural backgrounds with the opportunity to develop and showcase new collaborative work.

Following the submission of your individual idea, you'll attend a networking event where you'll meet and match with a new collaborator and develop joint ideas that will be presented at an informal "Pitch Party". Chosen artists will receive a bursary of 1,000 each and valuable in-depth guidance from a team of artistic advisors and arts managers alongside the Head of Creative Development at Bernie Grant Arts Centre and the Director of State of Emergency. You'll be supported by our in-house technical and marketing teams and utilise our rehearsal and digital media studios to realise your vision.

Your new work will be presented during inter[disciplinary]mission at Bernie Grant Arts Centre, London, UK in March 2008 and at the Big Mission at the Wythern Theatre, Swindon, UK in May 2008. We are looking for innovative and conceptual ideas; live performance, installation, a web project or any combination of presentation styles.

*Emerging artists in this context means early and mid career artists (mid career artists would need to demonstrate that this is a new way of working that will extend the artistic potential of their practice).

Deadline for submission is Friday 19 October
