Open call for creative proposals for DISRUPT
Deadline: Sat 30 Jan 2021
DISRUPT is a brand new digital arts festival taking place 8-9 July 2021. The event will explore how the performing arts has supported communities during the pandemic and how a year of uncertainty and change has encouraged new and radical ways of working.

We want to fund projects that will premiere or showcase work at DISRUPT 2021. In particular we want:
new and experimental performance-based projects created with, by and for communities during the pandemic.
tools and tactics to build skills on new or different ways of working in the performing arts, including practical steps on how communities, artists and organisations can collaborate.
projects that explore alternative and more democratic futures for the performing arts.

DISRUPT is open to communities, community organisations, researchers, creatives, artists, charities and arts organisations that work meaningfully together. Applications must be co-written by a community partner and a creative partner. 

We have structured the call around three programme strands, and you can apply for between £1,000 and £5,000. We can 100% fund projects or part-fund them. You must be able to premiere an aspect of your work digitally for DISRUPT 2021.

DISRUPT is a festival created in partnership with Barbican; Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance; Culture Mile; Guildhall School of Music & Drama; Lived Experience Network, Maya Productions; Museum of London; and Slung Low. The project is coordinated by Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Barbican.
