Each year Contact supports the early stage development of a wealth of new productions, including small bursaries, support for extended research and development, and funding/partner development.
Seed commissions often develop into full Contact commissions or co-productions such as Rites, I Told My Mum I Was Going On An RE Trip and Handlooms.
Projects often engage with social or health issues, address inequality, or foreground under-represented narratives.
Artist support for 2017-18 is confirmed, from which point Contact will operate from a new location while the building is refurbished and extended, reopening in 2019. During this period we are not able to support additional residency activity beyond our own productions and co-productions.
