Applications are now open for Modern Makers 2018 with Alex Rigg and Oceanallover!

We are looking for young people, 16-25 years from D&G, to take part in this project which gives participants the opportunity to be tutored intensively for 30 days by a professional designer and maker to learn new skills and to develop their own practice.

We are pleased to announce that this year's maker will be Alex Rigg an artist working in a number of different disciplines. His work is often of a large scale and developed for a specific context or location. He makes performance events with his company, Oceanallover, and has designed set, costumes and choreography for many other companies, including NVA, Theatre Cryptic, Theatre Babel, Nation, Al Seed, Ramesh Meyapaan and Process 10:28.

The Modern Maker participants will work alongside Alex in the design and creation of costume for his new production ‘Orographic’ with Oceanallover. The work will be shown in Dumfries and Galloway, in Glasgow as part of the 2018 European Sports Championships and in Findhorn as part of the Touring Network’s Autumn Gathering. Elements of the project will also be shown in Slovakia and France.

Deadline for applications 14th February 2018.
