Holding Space 2021

We are excited to announce that we are working in partnership with Imaginate, Birds of Paradise Theatre, Project X and Solar Bear on Holding Space which is a mentoring programme for artists and freelancers working in the young audiences sector in Scotland.

Each selected mentee will be offered up to five sessions with a mentor that can be arranged any time between October 2021 and August 2022, with a fee of £400 for the mentee to cover their time.

As this is artistic mentoring, we are looking for freelancers with an artistic practice within theatre and dance and who have a specific area or question they would like to explore with a mentor. This could encompass those who create performances, playwrights or those involved in any aspect of the creative process such as sound designers or costume designers.

The selection panel will consist of three artists and industry colleagues - Briana Pegado, Eoin McKenzie and Priyanka Jha.

Additional budgets are available if you have any access requirements including BSL, captioning and child care costs.
