IT'S ALL GOING ON - Residencies, Labs, Directors, Producers - Creative Development at NTW

Since starting at NTW, back in 2013, I've been talking to artists about the ways they want to make new work. Of course, there were differences in opinion about the mechanisms but there have been really clear themes coming through. People wanted to be able to experiment, and try new things with the support of a company to sound out, hone and refine ideas with as well as back them with some producing clout. They wanted to engage more deeply with their existing networks and be supported to mobilise the skills and talent there in unexpected ways. They wanted to be able to respond to landscape, local communities and a deeply felt heritage that is diverse and constantly shifting.

The myriad ways people imagined practically playing that out were just as diverse too - writing, movement, installation, sound, image. There were also strong calls for particular skills development around the role of the Director and Producer. And opportunities that aren't just for EMERGING artists.

The new Creative Development Programme looks to create space for many of these and we've recently issued a call for submissions for four particular projects (we're still working on the others!)

Have a look at the links below if any peak your interest, and over the festive period you might feel like popping some ideas over to us??

Located Residencies are unique opportunities to spend research and development time looking at new ideas for performance, that are embedded in a location or community. 
We are particularly interested in hearing from artists who want to explore ideas in North East Wales, West Wales or who come from underrepresented groups such as BAME and those individuals with additional needs.

DEADLINE - 12 Jan 18

Professional Development Labs give artists the opportunity to design their own performance laboratory that enables exchange. We are looking to hear from creatives from various artistic backgrounds who want to conceive, apply for and deliver an intensive skills development and exchange period based on their needs.

DEADLINE - 12 Jan 18

Two Emerging Producers will be selected each year to work on a range of projects, all with a focus on supporting process-led development of new work. This will include Located Residencies and Professional Development Labs.

DEADLINE - 12 Jan 18

EMERGING DIRECTORS (and Emerging Director Group)
The Emerging Director position is an opportunity for artists interested in working closely with more experienced lead artists/ directors, gaining close-up experience of their practice and inside knowledge of the creative processes that go into making one of our main productions. 

DEADLINE - 5 Jan 18
