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 a number of strands of work which we will commission.

Capture

This commissioning strand aims to digitally capture and distribute live arts performances and cultural exhibitions for audiences, showcasing and increasing the reach of existing events and exhibitions.

Extend

This strand supports pioneering ideas from artists and organisations to extend and deepen the experience of existing artworks, events, exhibitions or activities through digital media promotion, platforms or technologies.

Create Digital

This provides an opportunity for artists and arts organisations to create new, interactive artistic experiences. Our focus is on the potential of the technologies of interaction and participation to create meaningful artistic experiences and to reach and engage audiences in new ways.

Lo-Fi Extend

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.
