University of Huddersfield will host a Performance and Mindfulness Symposium from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June 2016.
The Symposium is preceded by a 2 day workshop with Nicholas Nunez on Tuesday 31 May and Wednesday 1 June 2016.
Bookings will be open for both workshop and symposium in January 2016. Workshop spaces will be limited to 20 participants for the two days.
Cove Park supports the creation of new work and/or new ways of working, especially through collaboration across disciplinary borders and research that takes artists into new professional and/or creative territory. The Jerwood Residencies at Cove Park – a series of residencies that will take place in the summer of 2016 – are focused on developing performance-based practice and are open to emerging artists working across a range of performance disciplines. At least one, presumably lead, artist must be based in Scotland, but the residency can otherwise involve anyone in the UK. They are supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
Participants in Jerwood Residencies 2014 included: Alex Neilson, Lavinia Blackwall and Mike Hastings; Wils Wilson, Catriona MacInnes and Madeleine Worrall; Luke Pell, David Shearing and Ben Whyman; Nic Green, Yas Clark and Naomi Pinnock.
Application Guidelines for Jerwood Residencies 2015 are available here. The deadline for applications is midnight Friday 18 December 2015.
Mindfulness and performance would like to invite potential PhD researchers to discuss studying at University of Huddersfield as part of this project. Please contact Professor Franc Chamberlain (email@example.com) for an informal discussion.
