Work with the Bluecoat

Bluecoat is keen to share its future programme and some ideas we are developing. Is there something that you are working on yourself – a music, dance or live art performance perhaps, or a literature activity, a series of talks or discussion events - that you think might work here?

Alongside the visual art exhibitions we present, we are increasingly working with partners to deliver our live programme: literature, dance, music, live art and other events. And now we would like to open up these partnership opportunities more widely.

Proposals might be for a one-off performance or a series of events across several months, a mini-festival or trying out a regular night that could then work across the year. Please complete the Expression of Interest form and if we think your idea could work here, we will arrange to meet you to discuss it. If a partnership arrangement results, Bluecoat will provide help in kind, including space to present the work, fundraising advice and some curatorial and marketing support. We are not however in a position to fund partnership projects, but as long as our costs, including technical, are covered we will be as flexible as possible in making events happen.

For an overview of Bluecoat’s arts offer, see Bluecoat Artistic Policywhich we advise you to read.

Criteria for selection:

• Is your proposal the right fit for the Bluecoat programme?

• How it complements other activity here 

• Quality of the artistic content

• Can it realistically be delivered?

• Target audience

• Does not duplicate another activity already taking place elsewhere in the city
