Re:Assemble and Re:Build

 

Re:Assemble

In association with 45 North

At Paines Plough we are addicted to writers and the work they make, passionate about sharing their stories with audiences from every corner of the UK. Our ambition is for our writers and audiences to be drawn from the widest range of backgrounds and we are committed to growing an industry that is representative as the only way to serve them. 

To achieve this, we recognise that we must constantly examine and review the systems and power structures that impact on writers and artists. No two people have the same set of circumstances and every theatre maker has their own relationship to privilege and power, which helps or hinders their practice.

We are therefore launching this new project, which is about broadening the pool of practitioners we support so that we might work individually and as a team to identify the best conditions in which bold, eclectic and visionary writers can thrive.

 

What is Re:Assemble?  

 

Re:Assemble is a professional development programme through which we will collectively identify, challenge and evolve existing dramaturgical systems and practice. The ambition is to create a peer-led, co-learning space with input and contributions from guest practitioners: Paines Plough will curate the space in which this journey begins, but the exploration, journey and destination will be driven and defined by the group.  

Please find the full application pack below for more information on the scheme and how to apply.

Re:Build

 

With a change in leadership in 2019 came a commitment to champion the unheard and reach the overlooked and we are actively finding ways that we can support underrepresented voices from the artists we work with to the audiences we engage.

We are now offering a package of support for two theatre companies over an initial six-month attachment in the hope of supporting them to build their resilience and strengthen their strategic plans in the current climate.

 

We want to specifically support theatre companies who:

 

  • Have an interest in working nationally and in new work
  • Who do not currently have the support of a Producer, and;
  • Who have a focus on underrepresented voices.

 

Over the six-month attachment we will offer:

 

-     A kickstart strategic planning session with our Joint Artistic Directors bespoke to your company’s vision and structure

-     Ongoing strategic mentorship and sessions with our Joint Artistic Directors and Executive Producer

-     Dedicated Producer support for up to three days each month which can include developing fundraising bids, budgets and project plans

-     Networking opportunities with our small-scale venue network of over 30 small-scale national venues and our wider national partners

-     Advice sessions on broader topics including budgeting, contracting, fundraising, marketing and tour booking

-     Access to office space to work and to host auditions, readings and workshops (once the office is reopened!)

-     Support of £200 per person for out of pocket expenses

 

We are taking positive action to develop applications from under-represented voices in the theatre industry and in companies who are interested in growing their strategic plans alongside their artistic ambitions.
