2022 Roxy Creative Lab applications now open

12 January 2022

Building on the success of our 2021 Creative Labs series, we’re delighted to announce that applications are now open for a further round. 

We’re inviting artists, makers, and freelancers into Assembly Roxy for a week to develop a new piece of work or practice something new. Applications are open to all performance specialisms, but we’re particularly interested in comedy (including sketch, stand-up or theatre), circus and/or devised work as well as those that are designer-led. 

Thanks to support Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund the successful applicant will have a budget of £3,500 to support: 

  • Artist fees 
  • Documentation and sharing of work 
  • Materials and equipment 

Additional budget can be made available for those with any access support needs.

In addition to access to performance spaces, Lab participants will also have access to Assembly Festival’s in-house team including technical, producing and development advice to support the future of the creative work. Each Lab will conclude with sharing of some kind whether through streaming, documentation or to an invited audience. 

We welcome applications from across Scotland subject to any future Government travel advice. 

Participants will be asked to work with the Roxy team to ensure we adhere to all relevant health and safety guidelines, particularly those relating to the pandemic. They will also be asked to credit Assembly Roxy for its support during the development phase of any future work to arise from the Lab. 

Find out more about Assembly Roxy and its  accessibility information or the different spaces we have available. 

To apply, just complete our quick application form. We welcome alternative application formats such as video or via telephone. If you wish to submit your application using a different format call 0131 623 3001 or email [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help. 

We will provide full feedback on every application we receive for each Lab season regardless of the outcome of the application process. 

Finally, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Tron Theatre, Glasgow, for inspiring the Creative Labs model.
