The Sick of the Fringe is back in Edinburgh in 2016! They are currently looking for writers with science and/or arts experience to work with their team to cover the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Instead of providing reviews about what’s hot or not in performance, comedy, theatre, dance and spoken word, The Sick of the Fringe is looking to connect ideas across performances, link audiences with relevant research and current events, and provide a more supportive community for artists making work which deals with health, illness, disability, medicine and the body.
They are looking to connect with writers who might be available for either the full month of August 2016, or any 5-7 day period in the month. Writers are paid for their participation with housing and transport provided (determined by length of stay and daily writing commitment). Please send an email of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is an article written for Contemporary Theatre Review, which has a pretty full description of the project, and links at the bottom to a number of diagnoses from The Sick of the Fringe:http://www.contemporarytheatrereview.org/2015/the-sick-of-the-fringe/
Deadline: 13 May 2016
