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 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.
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.
