New writing - Theatre organisations

Rifco Associates are looking for new scripts and treatments with a British Asian focus from experienced and emerging writers including musicals and dramas - deadline for applications is 7 December.


Rifco Associates was developed to address the lack of opportunity for British Asian artists of South Asian descent.


In 2019 Rifco are looking for new scripts and treatments with a British Asian focus from experienced and emerging writers including musicals and dramas.


To be considered, you must be over 18 and of British Asian heritage.


Successful candidates will receive a £500 commission to develop a piece of new writing alongside a programme of masterclasses and specialist workshops, peer-to-peer mentoring, writer's residencies, showcase events and links to the wider industry.


After Year One, one or two artists will be selected for Year Two of the programme and receive additional support to develop their idea further, leading to clear progression routes into the industry.
