Since its inception, the programme has developed the careers of 25 playwrights, including Jackie Hagan, whose first play Cosmic Scallies was co-produced by Graeae and the Royal Exchange Manchester in August 2017.

We are delighted that, for the programme’s sixth year, we will be bringing the programme to the South West of England, working with partner organisations Theatre Royal Plymouth, Wiltshire Creative, Exeter Northcott Theatre, Bristol Old Vic, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and the Ustinov Studio at Theatre Royal Bath.

The programme will offer you 1:1 mentoring, craft-focused writing workshops, specialist master classes led by leading playwrights and practitioners, a two-week placement at one of our partner organisations, and the opportunity to develop two short pieces and a full length play, and to share work-in-progress with an audience.

All access requirements will be met, including sign language interpreters and access support workers.

Write to Play is a paid opportunity and you will get a bursary of £1800 (paid in instalments) for your participation. Expenses related to participation, such as travel and accommodation, are also covered by the programme.

Mobility for Disability: in Carnival and Outdoor Arts

Share

Category:

Are you a disabled artist? Are you a performer with mobility challenges? And are you interested in outdoor arts & carnival?

If yes - this is the event for you!

We are holding a FREE one day Seminar funded by Postcode Community Trust, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

We welcome people with all disabilities to this very collaborative event. We particularly want to engage people with physical disabilities, not only with our own artistic activities, but with carnival & outdoor arts more generally.

The aims of the day will be to discover and uncover the inspirations, aspirations, challenges and boundaries to disabled artists and performers, within the context of carnival and outdoor arts; and see how we (Festive Road) can create structures with disability needs in mind in the future.

Our headline speaker will be Tanja Erhart from the amazing Candoco Dance Company.

There'll be opportunities for discussion and sharing ideas; demonstrations, including a puppetry and performance taster led by Puppeteer, Jo Munton; as well as bicycle-driven carnival design sessions led by Festive Road.

Lunch and refreshments included.

There are limited places so please book your place soon to avoid disappointment!
