Barbican Open Lab 2017

Applications are now open for the Barbican’s Open Lab 2017.

Open Lab gives artists the space to experiment in a working theatrical space without the expectation of a final product. They programme 15 Lab weeks over the year in The Pit.
We focus on artists collaborating across, and often beyond, art forms. It’s not a place to rehearse, it’s a laboratory to experiment in.

What to submit:  They accept proposals from artists from all disciplines who:

– Are at the beginning of a cross arts and/or participatory idea or question
– Want to try something that scares them
– Are curious and brave who want to explore process with new collaborators

Alongside the Labs, they also invite artists to a range of activity including CPD training weekends , cross arts residencies and masterclasses, Connecting Conversations-themed dinners and discussion events, as well as seminars and networking evenings.

If you’d like more information contact

How to apply:  Applications are made via an online form.

Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning welcomes applications from a range of diverse backgrounds and from disabled and non-disabled people. They invite and encourage individuals to get in touch if they have specific access requirements.

Deadline: 23 January 2017 at 10am
