The BUZZ Network, an EU project aiming at cross-pollinating youth theatre practice, is calling for professional youth theatre artists to participate in an Artists Training Lab at Youth Theatre Arts Scotland in Glasgow from 12-16 June 2023.
The funded five-day programme will offer professional youth theatre artists the chance to:
- Share and explore creative approaches to engaging with disability, ethnic diversity, sexuality, gender, and socioeconomic deprivation within youth theatre arts contexts.
- Interrogate what a diverse and inclusive approach brings to youth theatre, and what it requires to be implemented and sustained.
- Working alongside peers from across Europe, the participants will take part in a series of workshops and be introduced to a range of Scottish organisations who are working to widen access to youth theatre for all. Including: Birds of Paradise Theatre Company, Solar Bear’s Deaf Youth Theatre, Ignite Theatre, Impact Arts, and Sanctuary Queer Arts (TBC).
The BUZZ Network will pay for:
- Your return travel to and accommodation in Glasgow, for visiting participants.
- Daily travel expenses for local participants.
- All meals during the lab will be provided by the BUZZ Network project.
- Travel between venues during the lab.
- Any performances included in the schedule.
