Call for Fellows 2015-2016 – closes 2nd July 2015

The Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre is inviting expressions of interest from artists and producers in relation to the Fellows scheme for 2015-16.

In this scheme, up to 20 Fellows are invited to participate in and contribute to Centre activities.  The Centre’s aim is to provide a space for artists to gather to exchange ideas and develop work in a supportive context.

Events provided include one dedicated Fellows meeting per term involving discussion, presentations of work in progress and refreshments, and the Centre’s public Theatre Conversation and symposium events.  Fellows may also request membership of theLibrary, meetings with academic staff and access to in-kind resources (subject to availability) as part of research and development towards projects.  Fellows’ contributions to the Centre may include giving public talks about their work, or organising workshops or events.

For 2015-16, we are seeking a limited number of artists and producers to become fellows of the Centre. Fellows will be chosen on the basis of the synergies between the artist or producer’s work and the Centre’s research interests and theme for the year; and the complementariness of their work to the work of existing and new members.

To express interest in this opportunity, please complete the application form and return it with a copy of your CV to by Thursday 2 July 2015.
