New commission: Winter Tales story-telling project

Posted by

The Cultural Spring is a programme for North Sunderland and South Tyneside which aims to radically change the way that people in ten wards in South Tyneside and Sunderland consume, experience, influence and make great art. In association with New Writing North, they are looking to commission an exciting new writing and/or story-telling project. Inspired by the age old tradition that when the nights draw in we stay home, share stories and seek comfort in words in warm places, we are looking for exciting ideas to inspire people to write, read, listen, tell and share stories both old and new. We are interested in hearing from writers across all forms and media, storytellers, writing organisations, film makers, digital artists and theatre practitioners.

Applications will be made through the University of Sunderland’s Online Tender Portal and according to their tender guidelines and will open from 23 May and close on 20 June. If you would like to apply, email [email protected] and we will send you the application details when they open. You can download the full commission call here.

The Cultural Spring is also looking for submissions for their Autumn Lights, Cultural Spring 2015, and Cultural Spring and Development 2016. Details on the PDF above.
