Artsadmin Summer School - call out

The Artsadmin Summer School is now in it’s third successful year and offers a chance for emerging artists and people new to performance to work with established artist Mem Morrison for FREE, for 4 weeks to create and perform an original piece of work that will be showcased at Toynbee Studios.

The Summer School runs from 20 July to 14 August and open to anyone aged 18-25, from all disciplines and backgrounds (with or without performance experience).

This year the Summer School takes place in the 1930s art deco theatre and auditorium of Toynbee Studios. Using ideas of identity, memory and personal history, participants will trace the histories and stories of the theatre, exploring what you might see or expect to see there, and looking for new and unexpected ways to use the space.

To apply, call Sam Trotman on 020 7247 5102
or email with your name, date of birth and why you'd like to be involved. A workshop will be held on 7 July. Deadline for applications Friday 3 July.

Mem Morrison is an artist and director whose work often draws upon personal history and environment to evoke the complexities of acknowledging and accepting cultural differences. His work is produced by Artsadmin.

Artsadmin produces and presents artists' projects from its home at Toynbee Studios, working with young people who want to engage with contemporary, radical and thought-provoking work.
