Scratch Submissions

Pepperdine Scotland opens submissions for 2016 Scratch Event

Pepperdine Scotland Scratch
Self producing Theatre
Professional development for students in training

Are you a student planning to make a career in Theatre?
Do you want to learn how to produce your own work?
Do you and/or your classmates have an idea for an original theatre project?
Part scratch night, part mock funding application workshop, this is an opportunity to:
      Begin developing an original piece of writing/devised work
      Be guided and mentored through the first steps of applying for funding to produce a project professionally in Scotland.
      Get feedback from industry professionals on your work.

With guidance from Pepperdine and emergent Glasgow theatre artists, participation in the Pepperdine Scotland Scratch event involves not only early development of a new theatre piece but also learning to summarise a project, learning how to write to potential producing partners and learning how to fill out a Creative Scotland Funding Application.

This will culminate in a scratch performance of the project at the CCA on 29th July to an invited audience and a panel of industry professionals. Following the performances, the panel will provide responses on your piece, including feedback on your project summary, draft letter to a potential producing partner and funding application.

2016 panel TBC, previous panellists have included representatives from Playwrights’ Studio Scotland, National Theatre of Scotland and Creative Scotland.

Eligibility: Participants must be students (at any level) with at least one year of full time training/study remaining.

Please note: this opportunity is about learning how to get funding for your own work, but is an exercise/mock process. Do not expect to come out of it with a funding application ready to be sent off.

For further information or to apply, please contact Alex Fthenakis at .  For applications please include your responses to the questions below.
Applications close 31st May, 2016.
