Unlimited launches new commissioning round!

Unlimited is an arts commissioning programme that enables new work by disabled artists to reach UK and international audiences. They are currently looking to commission more work from disabled artists and companies.

Unlimited’s main aim is to commission disabled artists and companies to make exceptional work. They feel it is important at this unprecedented time, when many artists and companies have been stopped from touring and sharing work, to keep commissioning artists even when we are all unsure of where the cultural sector might be when these works will be due to bloom.

Currently, Unlimited has over half a million pounds available for Main Commissions, Research and Development awards and Emerging Artists awards, thanks to Arts Council England, Arts Council of Wales and Creative Scotland.

They have also joined up with eleven partners for their Partner Awards, which are linked to specific geographic areas, types of audiences and specific practices: Artsadmin, Bagri Foundation, Coventry 2021, Farnham Maltings, Museum of the Home, Sage Gateshead, Southbank Centre, Pentabus, Polka Theatre, The Art House, Wellcome Collection.

The Unlimited process starts with a simple Expression of Interest application, and then only shortlisted applicants complete a full form, which they do with support from the Unlimited team.

Information is summarised in the video below (available in four formats via their website weareunlimited.org.uk/apply-to-unlimited/ – captioned, with BSL, with summary Audio Description and with Welsh Captions)
