Megaphone, Theatre Residency for Artists of Colour

Filter News

Deadline: 03 April 2017

Call out for proposals for new pieces of theatre or performance, conceived by artists of colour based in Scotland.

The three selected applicants will each receive a bursary of £2,500, as well as mentoring and rehearsal space to enhance their residency.

This project will be produced and supported by the Workers Theatre, a new co-operative theatre company in Scotland. Each artist receiving a bursary will be invited to share their work at the Workers Theatre's first pop up festival in June 2017 at the Glad Cafe. 

Applications are welcomed from artists of colour - working across theatre, sound, dance, story-telling, spoken word and other performing arts - who wish to undertake a new theatre project.

They will consider applicants from all levels of experience.

Applicants must be:

  • Resident in Scotland
  • Over 18 years of age
  • A self-defined person of colour

You can use the Megaphone Residency to work alone or with collaborators (paid at ITC rates from the bursary) to write, research, develop, and/or devise a new idea, play, or performance. The residency could also be used to complete further development of a not yet fully-produced, project.

Residencies will run through from April 2017- June 2017.
