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? Performance Collective Stranraer (PCS) are inviting artists from all creative backgrounds to apply for their eighth residential development lab.
WHAT THEY ARE OFFERING
Performance Collective Stranraer are inviting artists from all creative backgrounds to apply for their eighth residential development lab. This will take place from 23 – 25 February 2024. Location is TBC but will be in Dumfries and Galloway.
The lab involves bringing young artists together for a weekend of workshops, and the opportunity to create or 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 creative talents of the attending artists, and work towards the development of their original audio performance How to be Human.
This lab will be run by PCS Artistic Director, Sarah Rose Graber and costs nothing to the participants. You are provided travel, accommodation, and food free of charge. Though they aim to ensure artists arrive by car, they can also provide route and travel information for those using public transport.
