OXFORD PLAYHOUSE LAUNCHES THE NEW ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE SCHEME
"Oxford Playhouse has officially launched its new Artists in Residence scheme, Evolve."
Evolve is a rolling year-long scheme which will support three individual artists or companies by offering a range
of practical and in-kind support, including seed funding for projects, rehearsal space, creative development and
peer mentoring. It is aimed at emerging artists and companies, or mid-career individuals at a juncture in their
practice, who feel that access to support, resources and input from the Oxford Playhouse team will help them evolve
creatively and professionally.
OP Producer Michelle Walker comments, "We’re hugely excited to be launching Evolve as part of our commitment to
supporting and developing artists. Oxford is already a creative hub in the South East region and we want it to
remain a compelling place for practitioners to make work. We’re inviting artists to engage with the theatre and the
city, and we hope that their creative practice will be fuelled by the opportunities, complexities, and communities
they find here."
Previous Artists in Residence include Paterson Joseph and Idle Motion. These artists will now become Associate
Artists of the Playhouse.
