Artists and creatives including storytellers, performers, science soapbox stars, musicians, animators and craftspeople, are all being sought for ‘Stories from the Shed’, a public events series being curated as part of Sutton STEAMs Ahead 2023.

There are 16 individual commissions at £1000 each to develop and present a performance or engagement activity which uses STEAM themes and which addresses one or more of the following ideas:

  • Sutton’s STEAM history – people, places, landscapes

  • Science in Sutton

  • Sutton of the future

A full briefing document is available here, along with funding guidance, and an application form.

The application window for these commissions is open until 31 March 2023. A panel will meet regularly during this period to review submissions, with the potential for commissions to be awarded to strong proposals before the application window closes. We therefore encourage all interested parties submit as early as possible, or contact the organisers as soon as possible to express their interest or to discuss ideas.

For all enquiries email: [email protected]

As always – we wish you all the best should you decide to apply.
