Another Route: International opportunity for performance makers

This is a unique opportunity for a group of England-based performance makers to embark upon a remarkable journey to internationalise their creative practice through an 18-month programme of events and residencies taking place across the world.

The project will involve 12 artists or companies becoming Another Route fellows and embarking on an 18-month programme:

  1. Mentoring by an internationally experienced UK performance company

  3. A dialogue and exchange process with a carefully chosen international colleague – be they an artist, writer, creative producer, activist or someone else whose skills and knowledge are relevant to the participating artist/company’s practice
  4. A 2-week residency with a different international partner for each artist/company
  5. A seed commission supported by Jerwood Arts and a brokered commission/development partnership with a UK and international partner to develop new work during the residency.

Another Route is a project designed by artists for artists, built upon a spirit of internationalism and a shared understanding of the benefits of ensuring generosity, mutuality and collaboration are central to how we connect with the rest of the world.

Another Route is supported by Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants programme, the British Council and Jerwood Arts.

Our anti-racist work on recruitment and retention

We are a friendly team comprising around 25 people where everyone’s contribution is valued. We acknowledge both that Artsadmin is currently a majority white organisation and our need to become an organisation that reflects the diversity of the country around us. This can only be addressed through deep, ongoing, active anti-racist training and policy-making, which is now underway.  

For recruitment, we are committed to ensuring that there is:

  • At least one person of colour on the interview panel
  • A chance to meet some of the team at interview stage to give insight into the organisational culture, as well as a chance to ask questions outside the interview

Once in the role, any successful candidate who is a person of colour will have access to an external coach or mentor to provide support in a majority white community. This support will be paid for by Artsadmin.

If you have any questions please email admin@artsadmin.co.uk. This email account is regularly checked.

Access support

Access support is available for all applications, including alternative formats and tailored support. If, for access reasons, you’d prefer to meet one of our team to talk through these guidelines or would like to submit your application in another format like video, please contact access@artsadmin.co.uk or call 020 7247 5102.

Access support for the application process
If you need an access worker to help you to apply, we understand it is good practice that this is someone nominated by the applicant requiring assistance, as many people will regularly use the same note taker or interpreter. You can request this support by emailing access@artsadmin.co.uk. We can pay for support such as: 

  • Note taking support to help a disabled applicant in meetings or to complete the application form.
  • British sign language (BSL) interpretation support for Deaf applicants in one-to-one meetings and translation of applications made in BSL into English.
  • Personal assistants for people with experience of the mental health system and for people with learning disabilities.

We will be working on the basis of up to £200 per day of support towards access. A quote for the access support services will need to be obtained and sent to access@artsadmin.co.uk then a fee agreed with us for its delivery. The access support worker should submit their invoice to Artsadmin. Once we have confirmed with you that work has been carried out satisfactorily, we can authorise payment.

The provision of access support does not require an application to be submitted. Applicants can access information on our commission and then decide not to apply. 

For open call and opportunities, awards or commissions for artists, we cannot pay for project development, such as the cost of an arts worker, development consultant, producer or bid writer to help people apply or translate from verbal languages (other than British Sign Language).

Access support for employees
If you are successful in getting a job at Artsadmin, we would do an access requirement audit as part of the induction process to identify and make a plan to meet your access needs. We have experience in supporting employees with Access to Work applications.
