CAN Commission 2020

Following on from CAN’s inaugural 2019 festival, we are delighted to announce two new CAN Commission opportunities for our 2020 festival. Each commission is for £2,000, with additional producing, production and marketing support. Each Commission will be expected to have a clear producing, marketing and production framework in place to deliver the work. This will evolve in partnership with CAN, but be expected to be led by the commission recipient. We are looking for live work that is ambitious, fresh, has integrity, and a clear process behind it. It can span any discipline, and does not necessarily need to be based in a venue. There is scope for one of the two commissions to also be developed and presented in partnership with Shoreditch Town Hall as part of CAN Festival in February 2020, should your work be an appropriate fit for the scale and aesthetic of the Town Hall’s unique and non-traditional spaces. CAN expects to receive proposals for new work or a new development of existing work. Commission application deadline: 5pm, 30 May 2019 Decision: 17th June
