BAIT 2019: Applications Open

BAIT 2019 Applications - Now Open


BAIT stands for Birmingham Artivists' in Training, and that is exactly what the programme offers: a serious opportunity for committed young artists with a socially engaged practice to grow in an environment which offers structured critique, inspiration, platforms, opportunities, and guidance. Looking at all creative, critical, and professional aspects of an artist’s career, BAiT helps plug a real gap in Birmingham’s provision for those who might otherwise feel stuck with the unshakeable “emerging” label.


BAIT members will be asked to produce a total of two group sharing's (in whatever form/medium they select), one at the end of each term. They will also be expected to have finished a major individual piece of work by the time they graduate from the programme.

Aged 16 - 30. Work in or want to work in art activism. Work in an art form. We are interested in general art forms as well as ambitious cross-genre work, going beyond traditional theatre, music, dance, & literature. We want to maintain a running theme of art activism throughout the work. We’ll be on the lookout for a willingness to take risk with the work and be challenged in its production.

Deadline to apply: Friday 15th March
