Artistic Associates for Birkbeck College - opportunity

from Jenny Wilson

Birkbeck’s Centre for Contemporary Theatre  (Part of University of London) is pleased to announce two Artistic Associate positions for the academic year 2011-12. In order to build on our history of fostering artist and critic development we are offering two associate artist positions each year at the Centre, where artists can develop projects with the support and supervision of theatre staff in the department.  We hope that these positions will offer a genuine exchange between artists and the institution.  We will offer three termly meetings for discussion and advice, along with some agreed access to an office and rehearsal space. In consultation with staff, artists can also engage in the thriving research culture in the department of English and Humanities, and take part in the broad range of reading groups and research centres run in the department

In return, these artists will offer one class to our students and one public event per term (two classes and two events in total during the year), culminating in a presentation of the work they have done during the year to a public audience (this may involve a workshop, performance, installation or talk, depending on the nature of the artist’s work).
The artistic associate award covers a stipend for the associate artists of £1,000 to cover some of the costs incurred during the artist’s work at Birkbeck. These artists will be joining a growing community of honorary research fellows in the Centre

To apply, candidates are asked to submit a CV plus a two page outline of the project they would like to work on during their time at Birkbeck (500-1,000 words approx)... Applications may be made by theatre companies, who will be treated as equivalent to an individual applicant: the stipend will remain the same. Please e-mail your application to Dr Aoife Monks ( by 5pm, Friday 22nd June, 2012. Interviews of shortlisted applicants will take place in the first week of July.
