Theatre Artist Residency Scheme 2020
The deadline for the Theatre Artist Residency Scheme is 9th April 2020, at 5.30pm. The window for making applications will open on the 10th March.
The purpose of the Theatre Artist Residency Scheme is to offer professional theatre artists the opportunity to create a year-long programme of work in partnership with arts centres and local authorities. In each case, the specific contents of the work programme will be designed by the theatre artist in collaboration with an arts centre and a local authority.
Proposals for funding under this scheme must have the committed support in writing of at least one local authority and one arts centre.
The objectives of the Theatre Artist Residency Scheme are:
- To offer opportunities to theatre artists across the country to engage in a programme of artistic work relevant to their own practice
- To offer opportunities to arts centres and local authorities to develop theatre practice in their area
- To encourage the development of long-term planning and sustainability of independent theatre activities
- To encourage a coordinated approach between key arts providers at local and regional level.
Award guidelines for this can be found on the Available Funding section of our website.
Applications will only be accepted through the Arts Council’s online services website. Applicants must be registered with the online services site prior to making an application. It is recommended that applicants allow five working days for registration prior to making an application.
