Performance Collective Stranraer are inviting artists from all creative backgrounds to apply for their seventh residential development lab. Are you passionate about performing, directing, writing, music, filmmaking, or something else creatively inclined? Are you a young artist (age 16-30) from Dumfries & Galloway and Ayrshire or do you live there currently?
What’s On Offer
Performance Collective Stranraer are inviting artists from all creative backgrounds to apply for their seventh residential development lab. This will take place from Fri 8 – Sun 10 September 2023 in Creetown with Quarrymen’s Arts Centre.
The lab involves bringing young artists together for a weekend of workshops, and the opportunity to create and develop original pieces of work. Artists will delve into various creative styles and practices, gain new skills, and explore their own talents. Over the weekend, they aim to combine the creativity of the attending artists, and create and record an audio performance, learning how to use sound and music to make a piece of theatre.
Labs are run by PCS Artistic Director, Sarah Rose Graber, and Associate Artist, Drew Taylor-Wilson.
The Labs cost nothing to the participants. You are provided travel, accommodation, and food free of charge. Though PCS aim to ensure artists arrive by car, we can also provide route and travel information for those using public transport.
Who Can Apply?
Performance Collective Stranraer is calling out for artists between the ages of 16-30 from Dumfries & Galloway and Ayrshire or those with a connection to the region.
This lab is for artists from any creative background, whether theatre, dance, poetry, writing, film, music, design, or directing.
How to apply
To submit for this opportunity, please provide:
- A short statement under 200 words on your interest in the lab and why you would benefit from it.
- Evidence of your passion for the creative arts (eg a CV, a video or written testimony, photographic documentation, an autobiographical poem etc).
Please email applications by 5pm on Fri 11 August 2023 to Artistic Director, Sarah Rose Graber at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that places are limited.
