Children's Festival 2021 commission and call-out

Creative Scotland are currently seeking new performance ideas from Scottish based artist/s or company for the next edition of the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival 26 May – 6 June 2021.

The 2021 Children’s Festival will go ahead, in a different form to our usual mode of delivery, presented in school buildings, outdoor spaces and with some sort of social distancing.

This Commission and Call Out is in 2 parts and is designed to encourage the creation of new work for families in Scotland.

We are very keen to attract as diverse artist/company submissions as possible, including from people with disability, d/Deaf artists, Black/+ People of Colour, those from minority ethnic communities and all those who feel their voices and stories are not commonly represented.
