Engine Room: Navigating International Waters

Following last year’s partnership on The Scale of Female Ambition, the Edinburgh International Festival and National Theatre of Scotland are collaborating on a new artist development opportunity for the summer festival season. 

Engine Room: Navigating International Waters will offer five selected performance makers from Scotland’s ethnic minority communities a new artist development opportunity in partnership with Edinburgh International Festival. This new opportunity will support and enable leading artists working in live performance, theatre, dance or music, to meet and connect with their peers, as well as offer them professional support, and the opportunity to experience a curated programme of Edinburgh International Festival productions. 

 

The Engine Room: Navigating International Waters programme will include:

  • Free tickets to a curated programme of Edinburgh International Festival shows (see below for full programme)
  • A place on the EIF’s Cross Currents Programme of artist focused development opportunities, facilitating meetings and connections with artists programmed to perform at the Edinburgh International Festival,
  • A dedicated session with the Associate and Artistic Directors of the National Theatre of Scotland and of the Edinburgh International Festival to discuss programming and organisational leadership,
  • A one-on-one session with Engine Room Producer Anna Hodgart, to discuss leading on projects, reflect on current practice, and consider future project potential,
  • Financial contribution to travel and other expenses as agreed.
