Open for Artists: greenroom 3rd Feb 2010

04Feb11

I headed down to greenroom on the evening of 3rd February for an excellent social event aimed at connecting local emerging artists with other artists and to highlight the opportunities available at greenroom to create and present work. I hooked up with the rest of Larkin’ About, and chatted to people about the events we’ve put on from greenroom and our upcoming event on 26th February which will showcase our top-secret ARG-noir Stranger on the 11th Floor.

The social/mixer was a really great idea. Often, it can be intimidating for emerging artists to find the information they need to get their work seen or experienced by the public. greenroom did an excellent job of pointing out all of the schemes, events, and funding opportunities available through them, including Instant Win! – an event that invites 60 second pitches with a £500 commission in the offing – and emergency – an annual weekend of non-linear performative work also used a selection event for commissions via greenroom’s Method Lab and Seedfund schemes. Escape Theatre performed/related their route through and development from greenroom’s support in a piece I would be hard pressed to define but enjoyed immensely.

Not only did greenroom supply all of this useful information and field questions from attendees, but they also enabled more established artists to share their experiences, all for free and with plenty of tasty cake and wine. It was a warm, friendly, and informative event for newcomers and regular patrons alike.
