Kurious R&D

At Kurious Arts we know that one of the biggest challenges creatives face is lack of free, no strings-attached rehearsal space, so we are proud to be launching Kurious R&D.

From October 2019 we will be dedicating one week per month of our in-house spaces to help develop innovative local artists and companies who pique our curiosity with their creative ideas.

We are looking to offer space for Northern-based creatives, theatremakers and experiential arts/design companies to play with their creative ideas. We are looking to engage with artists or companies who specialise in either:

  • Innovative use of technology within their projects, or those with ambitions to expand their current practice and explore how they can begin to utilise creative digital technology.
  • A multidisciplinary approach which combines more than one one creative genre (film/music/dance/theatre/writing/physical theatre/visual arts/VR etc)
  • Immersive or site specific work

R&D periods can vary from 1 to 5 days, and are completely FREE.

If you would like to apply to be considered for an upcoming Kurious R&D slot please complete the form HERE.

Please note: We are currently prioritising responses to applications for slots in October - December 2019, however, as a general rule we will endeavour to confirm the outcome of your application at least 3 weeks prior to the requested slot. We expect a high volume of applications for these R&D slots - your patience is greatly appreciated.
