new horizons: international inspiration. the garage, norwich, 01 November 2019

Friday 1 November, 10AM-4.45PM
The Garage and Norwich Charitable Trusts Presents

The Garage and Norwich Charitable Trusts present 'New Horizons: International Inspiration' - a provocative, proactive and practical event for leaders and doers across the arts sector. The focus of this year’s New Horizons looks at international work, and asks how international work can positively impact our practice, our organisations and our communities.

Our aim is to make the event as practically useful as possible, so that delegates go away more clued up - and more fired up - and with a clear idea of what they will do differently as a result of attending.
Across the day there will be a range of provocations, conversations, and how to sessions, so that, whether you're a senior manager or a practitioner there's something of value to you.

Speakers include: Libby Battaglia (Audacious), Maya Sharma (Audience Agency), Steve Ball (The REP), Annabel Carberry (Lost in Translation Circus), Cat Moore (NIE), Hannah Slimmon (Farnham Maltings) Alexandra Cole (UEA), Chris Gribble (National Centre for Writing), Veronica Sekules (Groundwork Gallery) and David Hynes (Norwich Charitable Trusts).

Tickets: £25, including a networking lunch and refreshments. Essential companions go free.

nuffield residency, lancaster arts. d/l 14 October 2019

Lancaster Arts is seeking applications for the fourth Nuffield Residency: a practice-based initiative offering one artist, company or collective the opportunity to undertake a supported residency including the use of our large black box studio, the Nuffield Theatre.

We are seeking work that is CROSS DISCIPLINARY and fits with our season theme: Radical Histories/Radical Futures.

I think the quality of the process was the fact that I felt we had time to fail, to explore, to rethink. The work is ALWAYS something else than you think it will be and the slow process of discovering what it is and what it can hold was very exciting

Maja Bugge, 2018 Nuffield Residency recipient.
Lancaster Arts is nationally acclaimed for the presentation, creation and development of innovative contemporary work, developed across all art forms and committed to nurturing artistic talent, exploring new ideas and challenging boundaries of practice. Over several decades the Nuffield Theatre has been synonymous with pioneering performance work. We are situated within a world-class university and support and broker relationships with academic colleagues.

The 2019/2020 Nuffield Residency offers:
A cash investment of £1,000
1 x 2 day initial exploratory residency on 13th and 14th November 2019
1 x 7 day period working in the Nuffield Theatre 13th – 17th Jan 2020 (including 5 days with technical support)
2 x 1 hour mentoring sessions
Dramaturgical support and feedback from Lancaster Arts Creative Producing team
Additional rehearsal spaces/creative time in other suitable spaces (subject to availability) on Lancaster University campus
Potential access to academic research staff if required

Increasing Socio-economic Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts, Jerwood Arts

Following-on from the publication of Socio-Economic Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts: A Toolkit for Employers in July, Jerwood Arts and the Bridge Group are collaborating to deliver two free, practical afternoon workshops for employers.

These workshops will each address some of the big challenges facing the sector, identify effective strategies and practice to foster diversity and inclusion, and provide a guide to implementing key recommendations from the Toolkit. Crucially, they will provide a space for employers to talk, network and feel supported in their efforts to drive change.

Recent research has highlighted a ‘class crisis’ in the arts. Individuals from lower socio-economic backgrounds are significantly under-represented among artists, freelancers and employees in arts organisations across the UK. Urgent action is therefore required to develop a more representative sector, in order to produce art that is both outstanding and relevant to diverse audiences.

Nottingham, at Dance4, Tuesday 15 October, 12-3.30pm.

Gateshead, at Sage Gateshead, Monday 4 November 12-3.30pm.

Lunch will be provided on both days and both workshops are free of charge, but booking is essential via eventbrite.
