Artist Opportunities

Brighton Dome is proud to be at the heart of a city bursting with creative life. In our three unique spaces we stage a diverse all year programme as well as opening up across the city each May with Brighton Festival. Whenever possible we try to give artists the chance to use the space as a forum for developing work and for debate.

Recurring opportunities and events...

The Works - we are interested in presenting a range of emerging and mid-career artists and companies across theatre, music and dance and look forward to seeing some extraordinary projects take shape. Whether you're taking part or not don't miss the chance to see this wide range of new and exciting work at the free showcase evenings. 

Brighton is famous for its prolific and diverse music scene. SPECTRUM celebrates this with a project to nurture and showcase the amazing musical talent this city and the surrounding area has to offer. Every month we programme a series of accomplished and creative musicians in our Studio Theatre, whether in a seated cabaret style for some melodic folk or standing gig with visuals for something brilliantly noisy. Every month is different and every month a testament to the wonder of our talented city! We also put on events and seminars with industry professionals about all areas of music, business, marketing...If you are a musician and are interested in joining the project please e mail rebecca.fidler@brightondome.org with a link to your music.

Are you a professional, England-based artist or company specialising in theatre and/or performance? Want to get your work seen by international and national promoters, festival organisers and presenters? Don’t miss your chance to show off your work in The Caravan Showcase 2016, as part of Brighton Festival. 

Brighton Festival’s artist development residency Collidescope enables a group of mid-career artists to intensively engage with Brighton Festival. Suitable for artists who have been making work for at least five years, this opportunity will provide an immersive experience through a packed show schedule across the 23 days of Brighton Festival, and the chance to meet Festival artists in up-close encounters. Artists and creators making work in all areas of the performing arts are welcome to apply.
