Shetland Arts has announced a new artist commission and Associate Artist scheme supported by their recent successful application to the Creative Scotland’s Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund.

Shetland Arts Commission Call Out: Refresh Now

We Ran into a Problem…Reconnecting…Refresh Now

Shetland Arts invites applications for commission from artists in any artform seeking to make new performative work and find new ways to present it. From musicians to dancers, writers to film makers, we are interested in works which sit outside the traditional theatre or performance setting; either in an online or other digital setting or created in conjunction with a specific site in Shetland.

These works will be programmed for performance in discussion with the successful artist as part of Shetland Arts 2020/21 season.

Shetland Arts Associate Artist Programme

We Are Here Now

Shetland Arts are looking for emerging artists with a strong Shetland connection and vibrant and exciting ideas they can help develop into fully fledged projects and performances. We would like to give emerging artists in any medium an opportunity for time, space and support to create performative work that they wish to explore.
