Market Place is building audiences for the arts by supporting new activity that reaches new audiences in the market towns of Forest Heath (Brandon, Mildenhall, Newmarket) and Fenland (Chatteris, March, Whittlesey and Wisbech). As well as developing and delivering exciting and inspirational events in our seven towns, Market Place has also commissioned a range of artists, arts organisations and community groups to deliver their own new projects which reach new audiences.
We are delighted to announce Round 3 of Development Commissions Programme.
Upcoming Deadline 30 August 2017.
WHO CAN APPLY
Development Commissions are open to anyone wanting to contribute to building the creative offer in the market towns of Forest Heath and Fenland. Creative businesses and professional artists are eligible to apply alongside voluntary arts groups, community organisations and young people. In developing your commission we would encourage you to collaborate with project partners to ensure that you have the capacity and skills to deliver your proposed idea.
