Only BAMEs need apply to Opera Northmain
The latest blast of positive discrimination:
Opera North is seeking applications from music-makers from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds living in the north of England, for its second programme of Resonance residencies, supported by the PRS Foundation.
Launched in 2017, Resonance offers professional artists in all genres the opportunity to develop new performance ideas. Successful applicants will receive up to a week of free rehearsal space in central Leeds in March and April 2019, a grant of up to £3,000 to cover fees and other costs, support and advice from technicians, producers and other specialists, and an optional ‘work in progress’ performance.
Four artists, Nwando Ebizie, Thandanani Gumede, Moji Kareem and Christella Litras took part in the first Resonance residencies in March this year. You can see a short film on their experiences here.
