Coastival Commissions 2017 – ‘Coastival: The Unexpected – Look beyond the Obvious’
Create has been successful in receiving Arts Council funding to run 4 new commissions of a range of art forms therefore creating home grown specific work for Coastival and the region.

The commissions will take place in 2016 with the final work being presented at Coastival 2017. We want these to push artistic boundaries and respond to the theme of ‘Coastival: The Unexpected – Look beyond the Obvious’.

We're looking for professional, practising artists / companies with an aptitude for working in community settings and a proactive, collaborative approach that will engage a wide range of participants.
