Artist in Residence application

The Philharmonia seeks a socially engaged artist or collective to collaborate with the Orchestra. The Artist in Residence will create new artistic experiences across our 2020-2021 programme of activity. They will take an inclusive and critical approach to our work and provide perspectives not already seen within our season, which will be reflected in the art presented, the identities of the artist(s), and the communities and audiences they intend to reach.
 
We are interested in collaborating with artists from across the cultural world (including but not limited to music, dance, theatre, performance art, literature, visual arts, circus, burlesque etc.) to diversify our artistic offer and challenge us to work in new ways.

The Artist in Residence must represent an art form that is not classical music.
 
We want to create events and content that authentically represents and engages with our residencies’ diverse communities.

This opportunity is open to artists and collectives aged 18 and over.

If you wish to discuss this role further, please contact our Audience Development Manager on tom.spurgin@philharmonia.co.uk.
