OPEN CALL OUT! Open School East is now recruiting associates for 2019. We are seeking emerging artists, writers, musicians, dancers, researchers, curators and producers to join the 6th year of OSE’S independent, self-directed and outward-facing development programme.

The OSE Associates Programme is a free, 11-month long 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.

We provide the associates with:

  • Shared workspace, accessible 24/7;

  • Weekly tuition and mentorship from internationally renowned practitioners, theorists and programmers;

  • The opportunity to conceive a public programme of workshops and events around their practice and shared interests;

  • Regular opportunities to showcase work and carry out short residencies at regional and national venues;

  • Critical, pastoral and practical support;

  • Seed-funding to develop, research or initiate a project.

At OSE, we are committed to improving the diversity of our organisation as whole and building inclusive cultures every day. Therefore we encourage and welcome applicants from all backgrounds, generations and sections of the community.
