We are all having to get creative in responding to the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we are physically restricted during this period of government lockdown, our imaginations are still free to roam, and as makers we’re still keen to realise our ideas.

In the spirit of adaptation Arts and Culture University of Exeter, in partnership with Exeter Northcott Theatre, Exeter Phoenix, and Kaleider are offering 10 micro-commissions to freelance artists working in any discipline who live in Devon or Cornwall, to explore the hyperlocal of their immediate domestic environment. £500 will be awarded to each successful project, to cover all fees and costs.

Outputs must:

Respond to the hyperlocal, and take inspiration from the immediate domestic environment
Produce a final artwork (poem, dance, music, song, installation, painting, sculpture, print, photograph, graphics, design, etc) to be shared on project partner websites - images, sound or video files to be submitted, IP stays with artist
