Time Out mini-residency: Peer-to-peer support for composers

January 13, 2017 in All Opportunities, Composers, nms opportunity, Opportunity, Other Opportunity, peer to peer, residencey and summerschool by mwhiteside

Deadline 10th February.

We are very pleased to announce that we are now taking applications for our next Peer to Peer Time Out mini-residency. This year we are looking for composers who have taken a break from their career and are just getting back into making new music.

Taking place in Fife this is a 2-day professional development opportunity for older composers re-embarking on their artistic career. Open to Scotland based composers who may have trained at a younger age and for different reasons (be they family, financial) have taken a break from making new music.

Composers are often by the nature of their work somewhat isolated, with few opportunities for interaction with other composers or for continuing professional development. The aim of this course is to give composers the opportunity to work together, share their difficulties and benefit from each other’s strengths in a safe non-judgmental environment.

The residency will include:

• Facilitated getting to know each other time
• A question-answer session with an experienced composer
• One-to-one skills sharing sessions
• One-to-one work sharing with peer response
• Group discussion and problem solving
