Lyric Hammersmith, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Watford Palace Theatre and Latitude Festival have come together to offer two exciting commissioning opportunities to theatre makers who want to create new work for outdoor spaces in 2015.

Over the last three years our organisations have collaborated on developing new small–scale outdoor performances. This year we are inviting artists to submit ambitious proposals for new mid-scale commissions for 2015. The commission size has increased to allow for increased scale, ambition and visually strong work.

Research & Development opportunities

With support from Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts programme in 2014, we are delighted to announce a Research and Development opportunity for Deaf and disabled artists wishing to develop new ideas for outdoor work. We are seeking to offer three Research and Development awards for new outdoor projects led by Deaf and disabled artists, and subject to available resources, with the intention of work moving towards presentation at the Liberty Festival in the summer of 2015 or 2016. Submissions may focus on any art forms that can be presented outdoors. We encourage artists collaborating with other arts organisations, in particular those based in East London, across art forms, culturally diverse artists and new and emerging artists. NB Initial applications should be submitted by 30 November.
