We have a new series of residencies/development opportunities on offer in partnership with a range of organisations and venues in Scotland. This new programme will offer selected artists the opportunity to develop new ideas with a residency budget, free space, Go & See funding and the support of both the organisations involved. All of these residencies will be promoted through our Opportunities page as open call outs with an application process and a selection panel that will include freelance artists external to the partners.
We will support the following residencies over the next two years:
Imaginate at The Work Room - a week to develop new dance work for young audiences. This call out happened in March 2017, see below for information about the selected artist - Julia McGhee.
Imaginate at National Theatre of Scotland - a 2 week writer's attachment to support the development of a new piece of theatre suitable for touring into schools. This call out happened in June 2017, see below for information about the selected artist - Victoria Beesley.
Imaginate at the Tron Theatre - a funded LabWeek in the Changing House with producing and technical support to develop a new piece of theatre for young audiences in early 2018. This call out happened in November 2017, see below for information about the selected artist - Lou Brodie.
Imaginate at Citymoves - a one-week residency in October 2018 to support the development of a new piece of dance for young audiences with a possible work in progress performance as part of Dance Live Festival 2018. The call out for this opportunity was in May 2018, see below for information about the selected artist - Mhairi Allan and Heather Fulton.
