The strands of work we commission

We support arts organisations and artists to get great arts experiences to more people using online platforms. When commissioning, there are generally two types of content which we can commission. 

Capture

This Capture commissioning round is run in partnership with the BBC to capture, broadcast and digitally distribute live arts performances and events for audiences, showcasing and increasing the reach of existing activities.

Low-Cost R&D

This strand is for smaller scale, lower investment digital projects which aim to increase the digital reach of arts organisations by increasing the impact of existing work or collections.
