Creative Communities in Quarantine micro commissions

Activate recently asked for submissions for our Creative Communities in Quarantine micro commission fund. We were looking for creative ideas from artists that would help communities overcome the current feeling of isolation due to the coronavirus crisis.

We received a very high number of excellent quality applications and are delighted to be offering 6 Dorset-based artists £500 each towards their work to help connect communities during lockdown. In addition to this, we are able to support 4 emerging artists in Dorset with projects working towards the same goal. 

The artists are:

Black Ven Poetry
BAC Stage – Youth Drama Group
Frenetic Fox Theatre
Megan Dunford
Millstream Theatre
SoNiche Productions
Isobel Jobbins
Rohan Gotobed
Sophie Fretwell
UpsideUp Theatre 

We will be supporting the artists to see their ideas become a reality, and will give the emerging artists extra support in the development process. The work will be carried out over the next few months and we'll be sharing updates and progress right here.
