Without Walls Blueprint R&D open call (United Kingdom)

Without Walls invites artists and companies to request support through the Blueprint R&D programme. This is designed to support the Research and Development costs of new outdoor touring work for final presentation in 2021 or beyond.

Without Walls recognises the importance of Research and Development in the creation of new and ambitious projects. As part of this longer-term planning Without Walls wishes to invest in early or mid-stage research on projects that may come to fruition in 2021 or beyond.

Blueprint support is available to enable artists to undertake development for new shows for presentation in 2021, 2022 or later. Without Walls recognises that ambitious new work takes time to bring to fruition and that artists can benefit from the opportunity to explore new ideas as part of the development process, before committing to a production.

Key point about eligibility and guidance

  • Without Walls is looking for work from all disciplines and genres, that is innovative and ambitious and challenges the idea of what outdoor arts can be.

  • Without Walls supports work that is designed for outdoor touring and artists should be committed to exploring touring opportunities for the works beyond the Without Walls festivals.

  • Proposals for work could be adaptable in scale, suitable for daytime and / or evening presentation and may also include promenade or processional based elements.

  • Without Walls exists to support the development of new and ambitious work by UK artists; projects can be developed in association with international artists, but the lead partner on the project must be based in the UK.

Most Blueprint investment will be between £5000 – £10,000.

Deadline: 29 January 2020
