Creative Development - a great offer.

Red Earth Theatre is the facilitating organisation for the simorgh network.

simorgh is a Midlands-based network. Our purpose is to creatively involve the mainstream sector in understanding and promoting d/Deaf and disability equality. We also support the commissioning, production, programming and curation of inclusive arts.

Are you a d/Deaf or disabled visual or performing artist keen to develop new work?

Do you live or work in the Midlands?

We are looking for d/Deaf or disabled artists to:

· Attend Ideas Tap a 2 day creative process at mac, Birmingham – led by simorgh to develop project ideas

· Pitch ideas to producers, programmers, curators, arts companies.

· Get practical feedback.

· Receive mentorship (the equivalent of 1 day) to develop a funding ready bid to ACE backed by simorgh

· £500 per artist towards expenses

Ideas Tap: an event at which emerging d/Deaf and disabled artists, across a range of forms, prepare to pitch ideas for new inclusive art works to producers, programmers, curators, arts companies.

When is it? Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 September, 2011

Times? 10.30 a.m. – 4.30 p.m.

Send us your name and contact details. We’ll ask about you and your ideas. No forms to fill in. Contact:
