Libert Festival - accessible work required - open call for artists

Liberty Festival R&D Open Call

The Mayor of London's Liberty Festival is committed to supporting new outdoor arts productions led by Deaf and disabled artists working across a variety of art forms. Following support from Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts Programme we are delighted to announce a new round of research and development awards for Deaf and disabled artists wishing to develop new ideas for outdoor arts productions.

Liberty is keen to commission new and accessible outdoor arts productions, which can engage with diverse audiences with clear potential to move towards presentation at Liberty Festival 2018 and subsequent future touring across other UK and international outdoor arts festivals.

This opportunity is open to both individuals and organisations where the creative lead is by a person who self identifies as Deaf or disabled. It is open to practitioners working in any art form that can be presented outdoors. Only one application will be accepted from each artist or organisation.

The deadline for applications is 5pm, Friday 3 November 2017.
