Open School East are seeking applications from emerging artists, writers, musicians, dancers, researchers, curators and producers to join the sixth year of their independent, self-directed and outward-facing development programme.

The Associates Programme is a free, 11-month long development programme offering a critical, informal and non-competitive environment in which to develop your practice and expand your networks. The programme is run according to principles of collaboration, experimentation and openness, and welcomes those who engage with these notions in different ways.
