Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

New Commissioning Round from Unlimited

Unlimited’s main aim is to commission disabled artists and companies to make exceptional work.

It feels 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.

For this next round, 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.

Unlimited are pleased to be hosting specific information sessions for disabled artists from communities that they feel have been underrepresented amongst their awardees.

For details of the opportunity for trans, non-binary, visually impaired and learning disabled artists to find out more about Unlimited Commission awards please see the link below:
