Virtual commissions for the Together! 2020 Festival

Together! 2012 CIC is offering ‘virtual’ commissions to Disabled artists and Disabled-led companies for the Together! 2020 Disability History Month Festival. Every year the Festival contains a digital offer to extend access, and this year it will take centre stage. Your proposal might be a virtual exhibition, a live-streamed performance, an imaginative use of email, texts or phone calls, or anything else you can think of. We are initially releasing £8000, and you can apply for any amount from £100-£1000. If your project costs more than £1000 and is short-listed, we will contribute £1000 and support you to apply to Arts Council England for a Creative Practitioner Grant and other funding, or to your local funding body as appropriate. (You do not have to live in England to apply.)

Please send your application by email to by 30 April 2020, answering the following questions. You can attach supporting material including CVs, images and links.
