The SPILL OPEN is aimed at early makers and artists whose practices may have been overlooked, regardless of age, working in between or across forms, and with something meaningful to say. It offers 10 opportunities for exceptional artists or groups to present work as part of SPILL Festival this Autumn. We aim to support makers whose work is grounded in generosity – to audiences, peers and cultural dialogues.


The SPILL OPEN is open to artists of any age, based anywhere, undertaking considered formal experimentation and / or investigation through research, that seek to offer some new ways of looking or thinking about the world and how we are in it together. It will support work which is considered and meaningful. We are also keen to hear from people specifically developing new forms tailored to the needs of kids or teenagers.
