Pegasus is excited to open application for the SPARK supported artist programme – inviting three artists and/or companies to work with Pegasus from October 2022– October 2024 to develop their practice around creating work for young audiences aged 0-25.

Pegasus is a pioneering force creating the present, challenging and shaping the future and making an enduring impact on the vitality of the performing arts locally, regionally and nationally.

We believe passionately that young people are the changemakers of the future. We nurture young artists and companies providing unique opportunities for them to be influential in the arts and wider community.

The SPARK supported artist programme provides artists and companies of all levels with the space and skills development needed to turn their bold new ideas into a reality.

We’re looking to support new work for families and young audiences (aged 0-25). We are particularly keen to showcase work by under-represented groups within the arts, such as artists from the global majority, trans artists, and disabled artists.

We are also keen to support locally based artists and companies that represent the diverse community of East Oxford  and will prioritise up to two places for artists / companies living or working in the area (dependant on suitability, quality and fit).

This two-year programme will provide bespoke support for three artists/companies based on their individual needs to cultivate, catalyse and develop innovative new work with, for and by young people.

Through the scheme Pegasus will provide:
- Access to rehearsal space (free of charge)
- Training and development sessions with industry professionals including fundraising, marketing and producing
- Showcase events and performance opportunities
- Opportunities to collaborate with Pegasus Young Companies and youth groups
- Access to artist and creative networks both locally and regionally
- Up to £1,000 seed funding in the second year

The application deadline is Tuesday 13 September 2022.

Interviews will take place w/c 3 October 2022.
