Unlimited are partnering with 17 UK organisations to offer 20 awards to disabled artists to develop and present work across the country and/or internationally, with a partner organisation.
Partner Awards are each jointly funded by Unlimited and a partner organisation from the wider arts sector. By commissioning in this way, we’re able to get more money to disabled artists as well as creating sector wide connections. We’re also able to reach areas of the sector that are new to us or areas in which work by disabled artists is currently under-represented.
With generous funding from Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales, Creative Scotland and our 17 partners, funding will be split into 20 awards which include international awards for artists thanks to funding directly from the British Council. Award amounts range from £15,000 – £60,000 with the opportunity for artists to apply for awards that suit them, their art form, and what stage of development their work is currently in.
Partners based in England are Polka Theatre; Sage Gateshead; Wellcome Collection; Homotopia and Marlborough Productions; The Art House, Wakefield and LEVEL Centre; Barbican Theatre, Plymouth, Real Ideas, Southbank Centre and Bristol Ideas. In Wales: National Theatre Wales, National Dance Company Wales and Span Arts; and in Scotland: Eden Court, Inverness and An Tobar and Mull Theatre. Along with our international partner the British Council.
We have two strands this year:
• 13 Partner Awards with a range of partner organisations across the UK
• 7 International Awards in partnership with British Council
You can apply for one UK partner commission and one international commission.
