Micro Commissions

Oldham Coliseum Theatre has launched its Micro Commissions 2021, offering investment, support and a platform for three artists or companies from the region to create new work.

Exploring themes of health and wellbeing, local stories or work for and with young people from Oldham, the commissions will be designed for audiences and participants to experience at home.

They can be any form—video, audio, visual, text, live performance—to be shared between March and May 2021.

Successful applicants will receive £1,000, support in kind from the Coliseum’s producing, marketing and production departments, space to film or record (within Government guidelines) and a platform to share new work online.

Two further Micro Commissions will be awarded amongst the Coliseum’s associate artists who have been working with the theatre since September 2019.

Deadline for submissions is January 31.
