Another Route is now seeking artists to be part of the Another Route fellowship.
This is a unique opportunity for a group of England-based performance makers to embark upon a remarkable journey to internationalise their creative practice through an 18-month programme of events and residencies taking place across the world.
The project will involve 12 artists or companies becoming Another Route fellows and embarking on an 18-month programme incorporating five key elements:
1. Mentoring by an internationally experienced UK performance company
2. Participation in three lab events, one residential lab in England and two taking place internationally, which will be opportunities to explore other artistic cultures and meet a range of different artists and programmers
3. A dialogue and exchange process with a carefully chosen international colleague – be they an artist, writer, creative producer, activist or someone else whose skills and knowledge are relevant to the participating artist/company’s practice
4. A 2-week residency with a different international partner for each artist/company
5. A seed commission supported by Jerwood Arts and a brokered commission / development partnership with a UK and international partner to develop new work during the residency.
Another Route is a project designed by artists for artists, built upon a spirit of internationalism and a shared understanding of the benefits of ensuring generosity, mutuality and collaboration are central to how we connect with the rest of the world.
