CALL OUT: 'Changing London' Scratch Night

Please note: Applications are now closed.

Deadline to apply: Mon 18 July / 5pm
Informal auditions: Mon 25 July / 5pm-9pm at Rich Mix
Scratch Night: Sun 14 Aug / 6:30pm-11pm


The basis of a scratch is about sharing a piece of work with the public at an early stage of its development. Participants in this scratch will have 15 minutes to demonstrate their work and then receive feedback from the audience. 

This Scratch is a platform for you to express your feelings and experiences.

There is no theme provided but we are looking for original devised pieces. Work that incorporates various elements and is unique, expressive and alternative.  Your work does not have to be naturalistic or tell a ‘story’.


Rich Mix Youth Takeover Festival is dedicated to young people, offering a range of creative workshops, live music events, fashion shows, film screenings, masterclasses, panel discussions, gigs, industry advice and more.


The YoPro Collective consists of several young producers based in London and Kent who came together at the start of 2016 to produce various events for Battersea Arts Centre’s Homegrown Festival. The YoPro Collective are looking to work with a wide variety of different artists to create exciting, innovative productions.
