STUN X Contact Grime Commission- BAME artists in the NW

Contact and Sustained Theatre Up North (STUN) are launching a ‘making’ commission for BAME artists or BAME-led companies who are currently based in the North West of England who want to make performance work. This commission seeks to support an artist or company that uses grime music to connect with audiences. Ideally working towards a studio-scale show to present in Autumn 2020/Spring 2021, this piece should have a story at its heart and something to say about the world we live in. The successful applicant will receive dramaturgical support from Matt Fenton (Artistic Director, Contact) and Keisha Thompson (Young Peoples’ Producer, Contact; touring artist)


  • These commissions are designed to support Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic artists to develop their practice and build new relationships with commissioning venues. Therefore, they are only able to consider applications from artists who identify as BAME or BAME-led companies.
  • Applicants must be based in the North West of England


Friday 25th October 2019 and applications must be submitted by 5pm. 

Interviews will be held with STUN and Contact for all shortlisted artists on Thursday 14th November 2019.

They will let all applicants know about the outcome of their application on Friday 15th November 2019.
