Open Call For Artists

Wednesday 18th June 2014

As we mark the centenary of the start of World War One, Nottingham Playhouse is taking this opportunity to explore the political and social consequences of that event throughout 2014.

The season examines nostalgia and regret, how history is constructed and the process of ageing. It explores the extent to which we control the future, and how much the future is already determined by the past.

Calling all artists!

We will be complementing our three main stage plays with a programme of work by emerging artists and are encouraging new and established writers, performance artists, visual artists and performance poets to submit work on the subject of Time and Memory.

Fiona Buffini, Associate Director, Nottingham Playhouse said: “Time and Memory is an interesting and broad theme, with so many possibilities. We are delighted to offer this opportunity to artists across the country, and will be excited to see how people respond. There are no word limits on submissions. We would rather you didn’t send outlines of ideas; we would like to see finished/almost finished work so that we get a real flavour of the piece.”

Submissions and enquiries should be emailed to

The deadline for submissions is 27th June 2014. All submissions will be acknowledged and the season of work will be decided by 26th August 2014. This programme of Time and Memory open call work will take place in (and around) the Neville Studio at Nottingham Playhouse in October 2014.
