We will be hosting our last Artist Residency of the year between September and December and are keen to hear from artists interested in participating!
What: The residency is designed to make it easier for artists to access space to develop their work in a safe environment, over the course of eight weeks. We are offering an in kind residency, meaning that in exchange for eight hours a week of development space we ask for eight hours a week of in kind voluntary support. This may mean helping us out with social media, letting visiting companies in and out of the space, or helping us out with the regular events we have at The Fly Pit. We are also open to ideas; so if you have any suggestions about how you think the in kind aspect could work - please get in touch!
The programme includes:
Eight hours per week of development space and eight hours of in kind voluntary support.
Regular artistic, organisational and developmental mentoring sessions from The Lab Collective and Nomad Creative Studios.
A sharing of the work developed, in the format of the artists choice. This may be a performance of a work in progress, a creative pitch, a screening or any other way in which you can test your concept (within reason of course!). Sharing your work isn’t about making a finished project, or creating an instant hit - we are more interested in unlocking its potential and facilitating a clear process.
Who: We are looking for artists who are hungry to begin developing their ideas, but have may have lacked the space or support to do so. There is no criteria in terms of your experience as an artist or maker, and recognise that everyone’s journey is different; so whether you’re embarking on a new career in the arts or are a seasoned professional with a burning passion project, we are open to hearing about you!
We are interested in all forms and disciplines, however our technical and spatial resources are limited, so at the moment we are accepting submissions from:
Theatre Makers and Companies
Why: We are incredibly fortunate to have our home at The Fly Pit, and we believe in sharing our resources to support new work and develop a new artistic community in South London and beyond.
