Applications are now open for bursaries of £150 each to support two creative digital-savvy young people (under 24) to attend, respond and document REFRAIN performances over the weekend of 7-9 April.

REFRAIN is an immersive choral experience taking place in Richmond Castle, North Yorkshire. For more information on REFRAIN visit:

To apply, please give three examples of your digital response to a live event and what skills you have to create these responses e.g. writing or filmmaking experience.

Please also include your full name, age and contact details (telephone and email address) in the email. If appropriate, include links to your social media handles (Twitter/Instagram/Vimeo/YouTube).

Deadline: Monday 3 April

Email applications to Ailsa at

Please note, the digital reporters must have availability for the weekend of Friday 7th – Sunday 9th April to attend some of the REFRAIN performances.


We’re looking for two fast-paced reporters to digitally tell the story of REFRAIN as it’s developing on our project Tumblr page. Working closely with our Communications Co-ordinator, the digital reporters will document the audience and participant experience and engage audiences in conversation about REFRAIN. The style of the work should not be a critical or academic review but an informed response to the experiences of those involved.

What the response looks like is up to the digital reporters. The response could be one form, such as video, gifs, images, social media, written interviews, audio – or a mix of all.

The reporters should be local to Richmond, North Yorkshire (or able to travel).

Please see a previous project’s Tumblr page as an example of how they will be working:

Email any questions to Ailsa at

Saturday 8th April 6pm and 7.30pm

Sunday 9th April 6.00am (dawn) and 10.15am

Location: Richmond Castle, North Yorkshire
