2021 Micro-Commissions

Through our micro-commissions, we fund projects that explore new ways of creating and promoting art in the northern region.

This year, we are delighted to present six brand-new micro-commissions, presented in a range of artforms, including poetry, short fiction, spoken word and short films. The 2021 micro-commissions respond to the theme of ‘Unreliable Narratives’. Explored within these commissions are the innocent lies of a child, the fake world of social media, what version of history young people are being taught, and how different perspectives can affect someone’s reputation.

Micro-commissions by Morgan Sproxton, Mymona Bibi, Naomi Frisby, Richard Ely, Sammy Wright and Sarah Rumfitt.
