Open Commission for Online Work (Deadline Extended to Friday 24th July)

Knaïve Theatre are pleased to announce an open call to all artists and companies with a commitment to the artistic scene in the North of England. 


We are extremely lucky and grateful to have received the Arts Council England Emergency Grant for Non-NPOs. In this time of deep uncertainty it has been a lifeline for the company that we are very aware has not been open to many artists. We are hard at work creating 3 pieces for online engagement for a wide variety of audiences and with a wide variety of artists. As part of this grant we are also making £5000 and our time available to one artist or company with a commitment to the Art Ecology in the North of England to make a piece of work for online engagement. We are interested in all forms of performance.

Please download the full brief here.
