Artist Residency (Deadline extended), GLYPT / Progression

  • London, All
  • combined arts, dance, interdisciplinary arts, theatre
  • Chris Williams


GLYPT are offering an artist / company residency at The Tramshed in Woolwich in July 2018. This season focuses on festivals, outdoor work and young audiences. As such, we are looking to support one artist or company to create a new outdoor piece (July 2018).

Our residencies are aimed at young and emerging companies and artists (aged 18 to 29), who feel they would benefit from space and support for a specific piece of performance work.  We would like to hear from artists who are making work that is exciting, innovative and unique. Work can be devised, scripted, dance, physical theatre, interdisciplinary – we’re open to all ideas!

The residency includes a week of free space, either in GLYPT’s studio or theatre, as well as mentoring and advice on creative process and development. This culminate in an outdoor public performance at our next 'CHARGED' event in July.

As part of our ongoing development support for artists, there may be future opportunities to further develop work created as part of this residency, which may include financial support and programming opportunities.

The residency are part of GLYPT’s Progression programme. Funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Arts Council England, Progression is a programme of training, projects and performance opportunities for creative young people, alongside developmental support for young and emerging artists.  You can find out more information here:
