THIS BRIEF IS NOW CLOSED - FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL AT IDEASTAP.COM/COMINGUP...

 

New Information

Please be aware that you must be available in London for the following key dates if you are shortlisted:

 • 31st October - a three hour introductory session to the project and the process of working in the collective

 • 1st or 2nd November - a one-hour session to pitch your idea to the judging a panel

Announcements of the names of the final seven creative directors will be on the 3rd November and you will be expected to attend an introductory meeting on Friday 5th November from 8 – 10 am.

.....................................................................................................................................................................

We’ve teamed up with Old Vic New Voices to bring you the opportunity of a lifetime - to create the project of your dreams in none other than the amazing Old Vic Tunnels.

Situated under Waterloo station this massive space has played host to acclaimed artists from Banksy to PunchDrunk and now it’s your turn…

The festival will take place in February 2011 but for now we’re looking for a collective of seven Creative Directors to make this happen.

What’s more you’ll receive the full support of IdeasTap and Old Vic New Voices and funding to help realise your vision.

You can be from any creative discipline and you’ll be tasked with commissioning and producing projects that will pull the crowds.

To be one of the lucky seven all you have to do is fill in the application form and give us an idea of a project you would love to do in the tunnels.

If we like your idea, you’ll be selected to pitch to us after the brief closes on 22 October 2010.

  • You have to be aged 18-30 to take part in Coming Up and you must be able to dedicate at least one day a week to the Coming Up project from Monday 8 November 2010 – Tuesday 8 March 2011

So get applying now….

  • Hi guys,

    The Panel has now been chosen so if you have not heard from us then I'm really sorry to say you've been unsuccessful on this occasion. However, this is by no means the end of the road as far as your involvement with Coming Up. A new Coming Brief will be launching on the site in the next few days as the Panel are looking for projects and productions from other IdeasTap members to bring the Tunnels to life so stay tuned...

  • Hello,
    I'm assuming as I've yet to have news that my application did not make it to the short list, but it would great if somebody could confirm this on here...? Best, Tamzin

  • Rather than submitting an idea would there be any opportunities to help out once the chosen project gets started?
    Thank you :)

  • Hello,
    I've submitted the same pitch twice (for Mr Sturzstrom and the night of mirrors) because the first time I uploaded the wrong thing instead of an application form. Please ignore the first one, very sorry for the confusion!

  • Hello!
    I am a bit confused on what do we need to send exactly. Can we just apply online or do we also have to send the application form that is to download in "the brief" section.
    Thank you in advance for your quick answer!
