The Unit

The Unit is in an empty shop space in central Exeter where we host companies to come and develop a new idea for a week.  This is a R&D space only, where companies and artists can play, develop and explore an idea with out the pressure to produce something ‘finish’ by the end of their week.

The weeks run from Monday to Friday year round and the opportunity is open to everyone local and national and is a rolling application process.

If you’d like to use it, please fill out this form or contact Emily.

Scratch Nights

Every few months, we host Scratch nights, where companies show the beginnings of ideas to an encouraging audience.

This is always an exciting evening for audience and artists a like, as the work being shown is still in development and so feedback from the audience is a crucial tool to aid the success of the show.

If you are curious about how shows get made or just want to experience something new we recommend coming to our scratch nights.  There will also be nibbles laid out for you to enjoy, from our wonderful cafe.

Our next Scratch night is on April 24th.  If you have a piece of work in progress and you’d like to take part, or to find out more, please contact Emily and fill out this form.

Future/Change Lab

Hello !

Do you still consider yourself a teenager or are you over 60 ?

If yes then we’d like to invite you to be part of The Future/Change Assembly at The Bike Shed Theatre  on the 30th and 31st of August 2016, 10am – 4pm.

The Future Assembly is about young and old working together to design a collective future we can all believe in. The story we tell about our future heavily shapes the life we live in the present.

Can we create that story together, across society, generations and cities rather than inherit the story written behind closed doors?

The Future Assembly starts a national conversation to uncover visions of the possible futures that can inspire us all. We’re really keen to get the right people there and we’d love it if you were interested and able to be part of the two-day lab. Help us bring a positive, creative voice to the post referendum debate.

The Future Assembly works by bringing together teenages and over 60s to start creating a vision for the future. In a two-day intensive Future/Change Lab we will use various tools to co-create a vision of the kind of the futures we want to happen 10 years from now.  We will develop a manifesto for a future UK where we get what we need to thrive.

This will be one of four Future Assemblies happening across the country in Liverpool, Exeter, Ipswich and London – so your contribution will also be part of a national project.

What kind of UK do we want to hand over to 2026?

Will you join The Future Assembly in Exeter at The Bike Shed Theatre on 30th and 31st of August 2016?

If you would like to join us and are available 10:00 – 16:00 on both 30th and 31st of August 2016, and you let us know by email to chloe@bikeshedtheatre.co.uk, we’ll send you a very short questionnaire to complete. And if you have any particular questions (not answered on the sheets that follow), please don’t hesitate to contact us on the above e-mail address.

With all best wishes,

Chloe (The Bike Shed Theatre) and Annette (Future/Change Lab)
