Call-Out for Designer

Application Closing Date: 18 Dec 2023

We are seeking a local Designer to design a Community Talking Circle for the world premiere of PUNCH, a new play by James Graham.

In May 2024, Nottingham Playhouse will produce the world premiere of a new play by James Graham called Punch, based on the book Right from Wrong by Jacob Dunne.

Working closely with Jacob, we will work with partners to design, build and host a Community Talking Circle which will run alongside the production at Nottingham Playhouse and in other venues around the region.

We are seeking a local Designer to design the physical structure of the Community Talking Circle.

The aim is to provide a space in the public realm that:

  • Encourages healthy debates/ participation, resolves conflict and strengthens community ties between different groups.
  • Offers a place for people to reflect, grieve, celebrate, listen and learn from other residents.
  • Challenges prejudices and encourages people to speak with people they may not ordinarily engage with.
  • Raises awareness of restorative justice, and the impact of violence.

We are looking for a Designer who has experience of theatrical set design and/or outdoor/site-specific installations. They should also currently reside in, or originate from, the East Midlands or Midlands.
