All Engine Room activity seeks to create space for artists, and we get that sometimes you just need a physical space. Through Guest Room we’ll regularly offer out our rehearsal studios at Rockvilla to artists with an idea they need to get up and at. Whilst you’re in our Guest Room, we’ll look after you – whether that’s with technical equipment, advice and support or keeping you caffeinated with access to our tea and coffee supplies.
Guest Room is aimed at artists with a burning idea that they need space to explore. Whether you are a solo artist, a team or a company and whether the idea is embryonic or fully formed, we want to throw the doors of Rockvilla open and invite you in.
After testing out the format of Guest Room in June, September and December 2017, we recognise there is a need to bring the application process forward in order to enable applicants who want to apply for funding to support their Guest Room weeks. With that in mind applications are now open for the following dates:
W/b 8 April
W/b 24 June
How it works:
We’ll offer out space in our rehearsal rooms in week long bursts.
Where available we will offer technical equipment and support (we cannot guarantee access to equipment as what is available will vary).
Where available we will offer advice and mentoring: producing, dramaturgical, technical.
You will have access to printing facilities, tea and coffee supplies and can make use of our kitchen and social spaces
