Field Residency for performing arts in the North of England

Field Residency for performing arts in the North of England

FIELD is an online residency designed to create space to talk, reflect, listen and be listened to. It is part of an ongoing conversational practice.

FIELD are offering ten freelance creative practitioners in the performing arts £1,000 each to take part in an online conversational residency. This money is to support your time thinking about your future, participating in and responding to the conversations.

- The residency will take place 15th-26th June 2020.

- It's not every day or all day, but a series of online conversations across this period and the chance to dedicate some of your time to reflecting on what the future looks like for you.

- In each of the two weeks, there will be a few drop-in coffee chats, plus a series of curated discussions on topics relevant to you. There may be some additional conversations that you want to observe. Only a couple of sessions are likely to involve everyone: most will be just 4-6 participants. Kat and Alister from Two Destination Language will host all the conversations.

- A publication will be created bringing together thoughts on the topics discussed, and you'll be asked to contribute some writing on an agreed topic, in a form that suits you.

- Prior to the residency, there will be a conversation to discuss further the topics you'd like to cover and help plan the sessions.

- Participants must be based in the north of England (as defined by Arts Council England).

Who can take part?
This project is intended for those working in live performance disciplines: live art, dance, experimental theatre, etc - if liveness is core to what you do, work doesn't have to happen in theatres or festivals or any kind of physical space at all.

Deadline to apply: 31 May 2020
