Summer School 2024

Are you an artist interested in co-creative practice? In July 2024, we will be running a four-day summer school, welcoming people to Brighton to learn about how we co-create original work. Our summer school will run from 16 – 19 July 2024 at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.

Interested? Read more and apply below.

The summer school is suitable for:

  • Experienced artists looking to develop their practice in co-creation
  • Emerging artists who want to focus their practice in co-created work
  • Recent graduates wanting practical tools to make co-created work

The summer school will be structured so that there are two days exploring how to direct co-created work, and two days exploring how to produce co-created work. You can either come to the two days most relevant to you, or to all four days if you are a self-producing artist.

We will cover:

Directing Co-Created Work

  • Holding space – the qualities that artists embody to lead co-creative practice effectively
  • Tools and techniques for working ensemble with non-professional artists
  • Creative techniques for co-creating characters and narrative development
  • Rehearsal techniques for enabling co-creation during the rehearsal process

Producing Co-Created Work

  • Community engagement – strategies and tools for engaging with people
  • Choosing, contracting and supporting artists
  • Responsibilities that producers have to hold to lead co-creative practice effectively
  • Casting, rehearsal scheduling and supporting non-professional artists


Our first summer school will be charged at a rate of £100 per day; £200 for the Directing days and £200 for the Producing days.

We have a limited number of bursaries available.


The deadline for applications is Friday 22 March.

We will assess all the applications we receive and select people based on the application. We will take payment for the summer school once all applicants have been selected.
