OPPORTUNITY - Two new Live Art commissions

Restock, Rethink, Reflect Two
A series of activities on Live Art and Disability 2010

The Live Art Development Agency is delighted to invite proposals for two new Live Art commissions from UK-based artists who identify as disabled. The two new works will each receive an award of £2,000 and be presented in the Restock, Rethink, Reflect Two: Live Art and disability programme of events in Autumn 2010.

Although not essential as part of your proposal, we particularly welcome applications engaging with one or more of these issues:

1. Ideas of interdisciplinarity; new intergenerational dialogue; and/or new collaborative partnerships.

2. Enhancing the commissioned work by professional development support that will be self-identified by the commissioned artist (for example, working with a mentor or dramaturg, development of critical writing around the project, and/or specific ‘skills’ development).

It is anticipated that the Restock, Rethink, Reflect Two programme will take place in Club Row (Shoreditch, London) or another similar gallery or 'empty' space in London. The proposed works should therefore be 'non theatrical' in their conception and staging, not have extensive or elaborate technical requirements, and ideally be works that might be located in a range of spatial and curatorial contexts in the future with minimum set up.

Each new work will receive an award of £2,000 (inclusive of all taxes and expenses). The £2,000 award can be applied towards: artists’ and collaborators’ fees for the research, development and presentation of the project at RRR2; research and development expenses (for example, rehearsal space, travel, materials, props); and professional development expenses. The commissioned artists will in addition be provided with technical, access and staff support for the public presentation of the commissioned works.

Successful applicants will be notified by mid July. The commissioned works will be presented no earlier than mid-October 2010.

If you are interested in this opportunity and have an idea for a new work, full, expanded details can be found at

Deadline for applications: June 24, 2010
Dates of events: Autumn 2010 (exact dates to be confirmed)
