Following on from the successful Refresh Now commissions earlier in the year Shetland Arts invite applications from performers seeking to stage new work live in October, November or December 2021. Commissions can be made in music, theatre, dance or any performing art and for any venue in Shetland. These commissions are supported by a second round of the Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund, through Creative Scotland.
We encourage artists at all stages of their career, with all levels of experience to submit an idea you want to develop, something exciting and something you’re passionate about. From a new play in a really rural setting to a dance piece in the middle of town, get in touch with your projects.
We invite commission ideas that:
> Create new and exciting opportunities for artists and audiences in Shetland
> Develop the performer’s creative practice and skills
> Are developed by artists based in Shetland or who have strong links to the community
Shetland Arts will provide:
> A fee which will be discussed with the Shetland Arts team and the successful artists. It is anticipated that this will be up to £10,000, including support towards production costs.
> Space, where available, in Mareel to develop work
> Technical support to produce the work live, or online
> Marketing support
> Producing support from the Programme Manager
The application process will have two stages; an initial proposal submission to email@example.com followed by an interview for shortlisted candidates.
Please find out more how to apply at the web address.
