In a brand new partnership with Birmingham REP, SHOUT Festival 2018 will include QUEER & NOW, a scratch night of new queer performance work from artists working in the West Midlands. SHOUT are looking to meet new artists, develop new ideas, and support new performance work from emerging regional artists working in performance (theatre, cabaret, dance, comedy, spoken-word, music etc.).

Successful artists will be given a 10 minute performance slot as part of an evening of performance in The Door, at Birmingham REP and £150 to cover the cost of materials and expenses, as well as mentoring, performance feedback and documentation. For a full brief and an application form click here.
