Micro Commissions

Even in Lockdown it’s New Year, new opportunities at Oldham Coliseum.

They have launched Micro Commissions 2021 to create new work to be experienced at home, and are working with LGBTQ+ Arts and Culture Network partners on Pride Stages Bursary.

Following the success of community sewing project Stitch, they are also seeking to create postcards of positivity using pictures and poetry, with exercises to try designed by poet Nasima Begum.

And their Teaching Theatre programme is going digital with a six-week course over Zoom to help develop creativity and employability skills for people under 30.
