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

Cost

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.
