2020 Associates Call Out
The Associates Programme by Open School East is a free development programme offering a critical, informal and non-competitive environment in which to develop your practice and expand your networks. The programme is run according to principles of collaboration, experimentation and openness, and welcomes those who engage with these notions in different ways. Open School East are seeking applications from emerging artists, makers, producers, researchers and writers to join the seventh year of their self-directed and outward-facing development programme. The Associates Programme runs across eleven months and provides the Associates with a 24/7 accessible shared workspace, weekly tuition and mentorship from internationally renowned practitioners, theorists and curators, opportunities to showcase work and carry out short residencies at local and national venues, Seed-funding to develop, research or initiate a project and more. Prospective Associates will be selected on the following criteria: quality of ideas and forms; a recognised need to access free and informal education; a genuine interest in being part of a group of people with different practices and experiences; a willingness to work collaboratively on occasions, be self-directed and interact with members of the public at different moments.
