Diane Torr Bursary 2018

The Work Room & Take Me Somewhere
Arts Practice | Deadline: 12.03.2018

Diane was an influential performance artist from Scotland who died in 2017. She was a founding member of The Work Room and to honour her, we are working together with the Take Me Somewhere festival to launch an artist bursary in her name. The opportunity is open to dance and performance artists based in Scotland.

Diane was a radical artist & feisty woman who set her own path and inspired many others to do the same. We want to continue this spirit through this bursary to support a movement artist interested investigating gender as part of their performance practice. The recipient will receive a £2000 bursary plus the opportunity to be embedded within the 2018 Take Me Somewhere festival and on going Take Me Somewhere Artist Constellation. The award can be used towards research, making new work, travel, training or mentoring.

Selection Process: All applications will be considered by a panel involving LJ Findlay-Walsh (Artistic Director of Take Me Somewhere and Gillian Garrity Executive Producer) and artist members of TWR. The panel will be chaired by Anita Clark, Director of TWR.

Completed applications should be returned by email to sara@theworkroom.org.uk by Monday 12 March 2018 and applicants will be notified of the decisions by mid-April 2018.
