Lyric Hammersmith residencies for emerging artists aged 18-25

The Lyric Hammersmith is offering three emerging artists/companies aged 18-25 the opportunity to pitch creative ideas for a two-week residency. All residencies will culminate in a sharing of work to an invited audience.

The residency dates are:

  • Residency 1 (Monday 17 February to Friday 28 February 2014)
  • Residency 2 (Monday 3 March to Friday 14 March 2014)
  • Residency 3 (Monday 17 March to Friday 28 March 2014)

Proposals can include the development of existing and new ideas/projects.

The Lyric Hammersmith is currently expanding which means that parts of the building are off limits to the public. For this reason, the residencies will take place in a different space in the local area of Hammersmith and Fulham.

Eligibility:  About you:

  • You must live in one of the 32 London boroughs
  • You must be aged 18-25
  • You must be able to commit to an interview on Tuesday 11 February 2014

What you get:  There are three residencies in total available for individual artists/groups. Each artist/group will receive support and guidance to enable them to present a sharing of work at the end of their residency. Each artist/group will receive:

  • Two week’s access to a rehearsal space local to the Lyric Hammersmith
  • Producing support to present a sharing of work to an invited audience at the end of the residency
  • Administrative support and access to a temporary desk at the Lyric
  • Mentoring and guidance from the Lyric’s Next Generation producer
  • Access to a budget of £300 to develop and realise your idea
