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 firstname.lastname@example.org . For applications please include your responses to the questions below.
Applications close 31st May, 2016.
