Deadline: 17 April 2017 at 13:00

Magnetic North’s 2017 multi-art form creative development residency Rough Mix will take place in Peebles from 19th-30th June. It will run at the Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre and is open to both early career and experienced artists.

The residency is a paid opportunity for artists from any art form based in Scotland, the rest of the UK or internationally. All participants receive a fee and travel costs within the UK. There are two prioritised places: one for an artist identifying as Deaf or disabled and one for an artist from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background.

ROUGH MIX is a creative lab for early-stage ideas and practice development: a two-week practical opportunity for artists to try out new ideas or new ways of working. It brings together a small core group of practitioners from different disciplines and gives them time to start developing new projects in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere. The practitioners work together with a group of performers and two early-career artists over a two week period before giving a work-in-progress showing at the end.

The residency is supported by Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre and the National Theatre of Scotland.

Location: Scottish Borders

Full information about how to apply can be downloaded from the Magnetic North website. For further information, please contact roughmix@magneticnorth.org.uk

The deadline is Monday 17 April 2017 at 13:00.

About Creative Carbon Scotland:

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
