Artistic Residencies

Artistic Residencies are extended projects (from 1 – 8 weeks) designed in collaboration with partner schools, colleges, and community arts organisations.

Artistic Residencies can span a range of creative and multi-sensory drama experiences that ensure participants are at the heart of creative process. A D/deaf and disabled creative team, both from within Graeae’s core team and our experienced pool of practitioners, leads projects.

Richard Cloudesley

Graeae artists are delivering a creative residency at Richard Cloudesley School this term (spring 2017), working with two Key Stage 4 classes.  Through weekly workshops, young people are developing  their own approaches to accessible puppetry and creating their own manifesto for the world they want to experience.

Teachers CPD

Alongside our residencies with children and young people, we offer Teachers CPD inspired by the project’s artistic aims. These are also an opportunity to connect with other schools to share learning and encourage new collaborations.

Past Artistic Residencies

Fuse Theatre 

In February 2017, Graeae artists worked with young disabled people from Fuse Theatre in North Yorkshire.  During a three-day residential project, young people created a live interactive installation using audio recording, visual art and live performance to create a piece which celebrated their human rights, ambitions and place in the world.
