For Artists

Commissions

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, including:

Stomping Ground
In 2018 we are partnering with The Place to offer a £10,000 Stomping Ground commission for a new dance show for outdoor spaces. Applications for this commission have now closed but check back in late summer/autumn 2018 for an update on future Stomping Ground commissioning opportunities for 2019.

Without Walls
GDIF is a founder member of Without Walls, a consortium of the country’s leading outdoor arts and performance festivals dedicated to raising the profile of the UK outdoor arts sector on the international stage. Since 2007, Without Walls has commissioned and supported more than 100 new outdoor projects, and the consortium continues to offer annual commissioning opportunities.
Join the Without Walls mailing list to be the first to hear about opportunities.

Explore this year’s Without Walls new commissions.

Liberty R&D
Thanks to support from Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts Programme, the Mayor of London’s Liberty Festival often offers research and development grants to D/deaf or disabled artists, leading towards future commissions. Artists awarded R&D grants in 2018 were Nikki Charlesworth and Rhiannon Armstrong.
Future Liberty Festival R&D Open Calls will be advertised here.
