Without Walls invites artists to submit proposals for the creation and touring of new work in 2024

Our Open Call is an accessible invitation for artists to submit ideas for ambitious and exciting outdoor projects to the Artistic Directorate – the partners of Without Walls who are responsible for selecting the artistic programme.

We are looking for work from all disciplines and genres, that challenge the idea of what outdoor arts can be.

Ralph KennedyDirector at Without Walls:

We are delighted to announce the open call for our 2024 programme. As a network, Without Walls is dedicated to commissioning and touring works of all scales and genres that push the boundaries of art in public spaces. With a strong commitment to accessibility, we have taken steps to ensure that this open call is our most inclusive yet.’

How to submit your proposal

Visit the Creation and Touring Support page – there you will find further information on what we’re looking for and the online application form. The deadline for submissions will be Friday 14 July.

Without Walls welcomes proposals from artists who have not worked with us, or in the outdoor arts sector before.

Creation and Touring Q&A 

To support artists who are interested in applying, we will also be hosting an online Q&A on Friday 23 June, 11am-12:30pm. 

This will be your chance to ask questions about the Creation and Touring Open Call and meet some of the Without Walls’ festival partners and supported artists. The session will be captioned and BSL interpreted.
