Corn Exchange Newbury is offering 5 x £1000 commissions for artists to create new work that can be presented and accessed remotely. Deadline Monday 30th of March 10am

From Corn Exchange Newbury:

We’re calling out to artists from all disciplines with an exciting commissioning opportunity to help connect communities through the power of the arts.

On Tuesday 17 March the Corn Exchange Newbury, along with many other theatres and arts centres across the country, closed its doors to the public amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As we’re not currently able to deliver our usual programme of live performances, film, classes and workshops, we have been exploring other ways that we can help the community engage in creative activity.

We are offering artists the chance apply for one of five £1000 commissions to create a piece of work that can be presented in a format that people can enjoy remotely. This call out goes out to artists working in any art form, and applicants should consider projects that tackle current challenges such as parents who have to home school their children, the importance of keeping socially connected, advocating for the arts as an essential part of society and celebrating key workers.
