Development Commission Opportunity for Artists aged 16 – 30

EMERGE is a project founded by The Mighty Creatives which will see 24 national arts labs undertake a 7 month youth led project to create 12 festivals reinventing the life and work of William Shakespeare. The festival has been titled ‘Random Acts of Shakespeare’ and will take place on Saturday 21 April, 12pm – 6pm at Boston Stump

Transported are offering three developmental commissions for emerging and aspiring artists or arts students of any discipline, aged 16 – 30, to create and present work at ‘Random Acts of Shakespeare’. This is an ideal opportunity for artists looking to expand their portfolio, get their foot in the door with reputable organisations, and present at a community arts festival. A bursary of £200 is available as a contribution towards the cost of production.
