Following on from our successful Refresh Now commissions earlier in the year, Shetland Arts invite applications from performers seeking to stage new work live in October, November or December 2021 - We Are Live.

Commissions can be made in music, theatre, dance, or any performing art and for any venue in Shetland. These commissions are supported by a second round of the Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund, through Creative Scotland.

The funding will be open to artists at all stages of their career, with all levels of experience, to submit ideas that

  • Create new and exciting opportunities for artists and audiences in Shetland

  • Develop the performer’s creative practice and skills

  • Are developed by artists based in Shetland or who have strong links to the community

Shetland Arts will provide a fee, which is anticipated to be up to £10,000, including support towards production costs, they can also be supported with space in Mareel and receive technical, marketing and production support from Shetland Arts’ staff.

All applications to be made to Shetland Arts by Sunday 19th September 2021. More information can be found here. All work must be staged live in Shetland during October, November or December 2021.


With your continuing support, we can do more.
