After a successful series of AMDS Residencies in 2021, we have supported 4 emerging and young artists. We are now back with our Artists Residency Programme for London artists seeking support in the development and advancement of their creative journeys.
Covid-19 has had a huge financial impact on the dance, music and theatre communities across the country, as well as independent businesses like ourselves. By providing residency space, we hope to remove barriers for artists who cannot afford to hire the space they need. We will be providing space for 30 hours throughout the residency period, and free AMDS membership for 3 months, once a final showcase has been held.
Artists residencies will culminate in a final showing either online (pre-recorded/live streamed) or performed at our Balcony Studio. This will be an opportunity for showcasing their work, a professional space to invite producers/agents, and hopefully find funding and future collaborators. AMDS will also provide support with marketing.
You will get a chance to work with a mentor for 10 hours during your time at the residency. You will also receive a feedback session with the team at Academy Mews Dance Studio.
The first round for the months April – May 2022 is for young artists aged 18-24. The second round will take place September – October 2022, which will be for emerging artists above the age of 24 years.
Few more key points about our residency:
– If you are an artist focused on dance, theatre or music, you are eligible to apply.
– All residencies will culminate in a final showing, which will be new work or development of previous work. This can be a work-in-progress.
– There will be an interview round, with the date mentioned in the application form. Please, make sure you are available on the day to be considered.
– Groups/collectives of 6 or less artists will be eligible to apply for the residency.
