Small Venues Network New Work Commission Call-Out

Small Venues Network New Work Commission Call-Out

This is an open call for artists’ submissions to create a new performance for the Small Venues Network (SVN) in autumn 2016. The Small Venues Network is an informal consortium of 12 smaller arts venues in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire that has been active for over three years. As part of a successful 3 year Grants for the Arts bid we are looking to commission a new piece of small scale performance to be presented in all 12 venues in autumn 2016.

At this stage we are open to ideas and are seeking proposals from any performance genre. The work produced will need to be adaptable to be presented in, around or outside each of the diverse SVN venues and be relevant to our audience demographics.

The call out is open to artists and companies from across the UK and we would be particularly keen to receive proposals from artists and companies based in our region.

What we can offer:
The commission opportunity offers a £25,000 budget for the creation and performance of the piece at the 12 SVN venues, space and opportunities to invite test audiences for the research and development of the piece, and marketing and production support from venues in the SVN.
