Oldham Coliseum Theatre’s Micro Commissions 2021

Oldham Coliseum Theatre’s Micro Commissions 2021 offers investment, support, and a virtual platform for three artists/companies to create work for and about the world as we live in it today.

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

There are three Micro-Commissions available, which include:

  • £1,000 cash investment.
  • Support in kind from the Coliseum’s producing, marketing and production departments.
  • Space to film or record (within Government guidelines).
  • A platform to share new work online.


Proposals for new work to be made exploring any of the following topics: health and wellbeing, local stories, or work for or with young people in Oldham.
The final piece will be available online between March and May 2021. It can be any length and any form you like – video, audio, visual, text, a live performance over Zoom for example – but must be made for an audience at home.
This fund is for artists (individuals or collectives) based in Greater Manchester over the age of 18.
The £1,000 cash investment is to cover artists’ time and resources for the project.



Sunday 31 January, 11.59pm.
Applicants will be informed on the outcome of their submission by Friday 5 February 2021, 6pm.
