SLAPover at York Mediale
Monday 13th - Friday 17th August

A week long creative slumber party for artists to live, eat, work and collaborate.

SLAPover is a 1-week creative residency for artists to collaborate and create new live performance work, developing and testing ideas together. They will be exploring how technology and performance can be combined, creating brand new experiences for audiences. ‘What does the future look like?’ will be the artists main brief and line of enquiry during the week.

The aim of SLAPover is to create a safe space for artists and performers to experiment and share skills in a collaborative atmosphere. The SLAPover residency will run from the 13th to the 17th of August 2018 and the public sharing of work created will be on the 5th October 2018, forming part of York Mediale’s programme.

After holding a nationwide open call we have now selected 5 artists to take part in the process.

SLAPover is supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England. With further support from York Mediale and York St John University.
