The Cultural Spring Commissions

We currently have the following opportunities available:

Callout for Artists / Creative Practitioners – Delivery of creative workshops and/or participatory experiences

The Cultural Spring will soon start programming its Autumn 2021 programme of creative workshops, participatory activities and taster sessions. 

Our programme is co-designed with our community champions and community partners and aims to reflect the interests of the communities we are seeking to engage. We are planning for much of our programme to be delivered as in-person experiences from September 2021 onwards, whilst still providing access for those not able to attend in-person sessions. 

In order to remain aware of the breadth of artists and creative practitioners in South Tyneside and Sunderland, as well as the wider North East, we’re seeking to update our artists / creative practitioner database to ensure we offer artistic opportunities as widely as possible. 

If these activities are of interest to our community champions / community partners, we will be in touch to discuss further.

Expressions of Interest

Please complete our simple online form to tell us about the workshops / participatory experiences you’re able to deliver. Please also complete our short monitoring form

You can also respond to this call via a video/audio file that responds to the questions in the form and sending to

If you require support or this information in an alternative format, please contact

Please be aware there is no guarantee of work, but by sharing your details and outlining the types of creative workshop / participatory experiences you’re able to offer means that we can share this with the community champions and community partners when co-designing our programme of activities and continue to contact you in the future with information about creative opportunities and commissions.

Please note we will not accept CVs on their own. Deadline: we’re open to receiving information from artists / creative practitioners year round, but to be considered for our Autumn programme of activities we will need to receive your completed online form by 10am on 12th July 2021.
