We today announce The Artist Residency Schemefor summer 2022. Five £500 residencies will be available for artists and projects that would benefit from financial and dramaturgical support, plus space at Sheffield Theatres for one week.
We recognise the challenges faced by artists who are launching creative pieces in the early stage of their formation. The Artist Residency Scheme seeks to give artists the space they need, and seed funding to start a creative process. These residencies are suitable for people at the early stages of their creative journeys.
In addition, we are also looking for a single project that would benefit from £3,000, dramaturgical support, and up to two weeks of space at Sheffield Theatres. There is one residency available, suitable for a project that is ready to be explored in a room with multiple creatives.
The application window for both the The Artist Residency Scheme and the single project is open now and closes at 10am on Monday 20 June. Decisions will be made and communicated by Friday 8 July.
