Bursary Opportunity Time to Stare

“Methinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.”  Henry David Thoreau

Launched in 2018 with support from ACE, Time To Stare acknowledges the need for practitioners to become more resilient, more innovative and more sustainable and do so in ways that do not compromise an original passion or creative process.

B&R Productions are pleased to announce that applications are open for the second Time To Stare residential arts development bursary for small to medium sized companies, individual practitioners or creative collaborations.

The bursary is for the development of a specific project or work, giving small and medium sized companies, individual practitioners or arts partnerships the time and the environment in which to take stock, develop ideas and strategy and equip themselves with the wherewithal to thrive in increasingly challenging circumstances.

“…an amazing week of development, encouragement, sharing of ideas…a huge step in the development of my creative practice.”
Diana Scarborough Time To Stare bursary recipient February 2019.

The residencies accommodate up to four people (2 x 2 sharing with the option of others joining on a daily basis) for five days at The Studio in rural Three Oaks, East Sussex providing time away from the daily demands of management and delivery; time to think, to generate and explore new ideas. With a multitude of footpaths and walking routes through historic 1066 country, including coastal, wood and farmlands, participants will be facilitated and encouraged to use the natural environment.

The residency includes a dedicated half- day with your chosen mentor, one of seven professionals from a variety of backgrounds, brought together in order to facilitate stimulating conversations and innovative ways of thinking, crossing inter-disciplinary barriers and encouraging creative investigations of the human condition from a wide range of perspectives. In addition, we hope that bursary recipients will be enabled to consider new contexts, platforms and ways to engage with audiences, whether this be in the public realm, through strategic partnerships and or research based enquiry.

Applications are open to small to medium sized arts organisations and individuals seeking to develop a new work or company strategy.

Closing date: Friday 7th June 2019 12pm.

Residency must be taken between November 1st and November 29th 2019.
