The search is on for the next Old Vic 12

13 August 2018

The search is on to find the next group of exciting artists to become The Old Vic 12.

The Old Vic 12 is a group of 12 extraordinary developing artists ready to take the next step in their careers. The scheme provides opportunities to expand their networks, receive first class mentoring and benefit from a prestigious association with The Old Vic through an attachment to this iconic building. The selected 12 will also receive a grant to create and develop three brand new plays to be presented at The Old Vic.

The Old Vic is looking for three directors, three playwrights, three producers and three exciting collaborators from any discipline: designers, composers, DJs, lighting designers, movement directors, illusionists and everything in-between; if you’re interested in collaboration and new writing, we want to hear from you.

The successful applicants will be creatives looking to make a change in their work, whether that’s a step up or the support to go in a new direction. Applicants should be creating their own work on the fringe, assisting established practitioners or working at the equivalent level, and feel that they would benefit from a structured year and attachment to an independent producing theatre. Successful applicants currently based outside of London will be eligible for support with travel and accommodation. We will also work with you to make sure any access needs are met and that you can make the most out of the opportunity.

Opening date for applications: Tue 31 Jul

Closing date for applications: by 12pm Mon 3 Sept
