For one week this summer we are inviting professional and emerging artists from all disciplines to occupy the New Wolsey Theatre to develop their work and fill our building with creativity and conversation.
We will give over as many rooms as we can for free to artists who need space to rehearse, write, share skills, or simply to breathe and think. These accessible spaces will be spread across the New Wolsey Theatre, be rough and ready, and vary in size – from dressing rooms to hot-desks, and meeting rooms to our main stage.
We will host informal get-togethers over the course of the week, allowing creatives to meet up, start a conversation about what they’re up to, and expand their creative networks.
You can also book in time with selected members of our staff across the week for consultancy and advice. This might be marketing, dramaturgy, budgeting, producing, or technical support.
This week is open to everyone, but we will prioritise artists who live or work in the East Anglian region.
We’re interested in hearing from all types of creatives working in any performance-making discipline, so you might be a performer, director, writer, producer, designer etc.
We’re also interested in artists who want space to explore specific projects. This could be an idea that you’ve always wanted a bit of headspace to focus on, or a new project that’s in its early stages of development.
We have limited space and will allocate opportunities based on who we can fit in where. To apply for a space please click here to complete our application form.
Applications close Monday 19th June, 10am. We aim to let you know the outcome of your application by end of day Friday 23rd June.
