Most of our conversations with artists evolve over a long period of time and there isn’t a formal application process for presenting your work at GDIF or being commissioned as part of the Festival. However, we collaborate with a variety of national partners on some projects which offer commissioning opportunities via open call – discover more below.



Stomping Ground

Stomping Ground is a commissioning group comprised of The Place, FESTIVAL.ORG,  DanceXchange, and Glasgow Tramway.  We are interested in supporting compelling ideas that are visually striking and engage across a broad audience base.  The commission is built towards investing in artists interested in the development of ambitious, high-quality work, created for outdoor spaces that can grab the attention & imaginations of audiences.

2021 applications are now closed.
