Film still from  the movie Top Gun - showing a group of jet pilots celebrating. In the foreground are two white men congratulating one-another. The words 'You can be my wingman' are written in a caption in white capitals on the left side of the image. Beneath this in white smaller capitals another caption reads 'A Retreat for Artists by Artists'.

You Can Be My Wingman is a week-long, hosted retreat for performance makers of all kinds. Produced by Action Hero, supported by Dartington Trust, and with mentoring from Britt Hatzius (DE / UK). The retreat is an open-ended, non-pressurised space for mid-career artists to explore new collaborative processes in a supported and friendly environment.

You Can Be My Wingman isn’t a residency or a workshop. Instead of being ‘productive’ time, the retreat is intended to be restful and nourishing to your practice.

You Can Be My Wingman will run from Saturday 12h February – Friday 18th February 2022 at Dartington Hall in Totnes, and artists who wish to join the retreat are invited to apply, together with a proposed collaborator, to spend a week exploring an area of mutual interest.

The deadline for applications is 5pm, Monday 13th December.
