Chester Mystery Plays, Artist in Residence

Chester Mystery Plays
Artist in Residence

Chester Mystery Plays returns to Chester Cathedral in June 2018 for its next major production. This spectacular community theatre event will be performed by a cast of around 200+ adults and children, and produced by a professional artistic and production team.

This is an opportunity for an artist (in any visual arts or literary medium) to extend and develop their practice by documenting the Plays. The artist would have access to workshops, rehearsals, technical fit up and performances from the beginning of February 2018 to mid-July (the performances are 27 June – 14 July).

This is an unpaid role – all intellectual property would be held by the artist, but Chester Mystery Plays would wish to use material produced, without charge, to help in the promotion of the Plays, eg in PR material and on the website.

DEADLINE: 5 January 2018
