THE SPACE: Commissioning Round now open

The commissioning round is now open for projects that extend existing artworks using digital technology; and “landmark” digital arts projects that use technology as an intrinsic part of the work.

The commissioning round is now open for applicants from the UK arts and creative sectors. 

THE SPACE are delighted to announce that our new commissioning round is now open.

THE SPACE are interested in work that fits one of three strands – capture projects; projects that extend existing artworks or performances using digital technology; and “landmark” digital arts projects that use technology as an intrinsic part of the work.

THE SPACEare looking for the most exciting and innovative work from organisations and artists across the UK arts and creative industries, aligned with a commitment to high quality and the desire to extend the arts experience to wider audiences, harnessing the potential of digital media and technology.

From 2 November until 15 December, you can apply to have your work commissioned by The Space. This includes potential distribution through our core distribution relationships with BBC services such as BBC Arts online or partnerships with other digital media platforms where they are most appropriate.

You can download the commissioning brief below, along with guidance notes.

From 2 November, you can register and apply on our application portal, which you will be able to access from thespace.org. 

The questions you will need to answer in your application are included with the guidance notes and commissioning brief. This is to give you time to start considering your answers. The online submissions system for proposals will open for business on 2nd November.
