£500 Playful Bursaries


The Royal Exchange Theatre is offering three Playful Bursaries to artists or companies who would like to develop new performance ideas for young people.

The three £500 bursaries are available as a contribution to any artist or collection of artists based in the Northwest who wish to develop an idea for a performance project aimed at 9 – 13 year olds. The idea should not be text-based, but you may include a writer as part of your development team.

Each successful applicant will also be offered a rehearsal space at the Royal Exchange Theatre for up to one week during Summer 2013 for research and development of their idea – dates to be agreed with the successful applicants. You should be prepared to provide a short presentation of your idea at the end of this week.

Please provide no more than 500 words in writing about your idea and who would be involved. This should be accompanied by simple CVs and/or a company biog.

All applications to be sent to:

Playful Bursaries
3rd Floor
Royal Exchange Theatre
St Ann’s Square
M2 7DH

The deadline for applications is 31 January 2013. Successful applicants will be contacted by the end of February 2013.

Please note that only written applications will be accepted.
