The Season for Change team would like to extend a warm thank you to all those who submitted applications to Common Ground – particularly under our current circumstances.

We were thrilled to have received 204 applications from across the country, and are currently reviewing them all before coming up with a shortlist.

Decision process timeline:

Mid September: Shortlisted artists will be invited to expand on their plans as part of an informal interview. 

By the end of September: All applicants notified of outcome by email

Throughout October: Feedback available to longlisted and shortlisted applicants

19 October: The four selected artists begin the Common Ground programme 

Spring 2021: Showcase of four commissioned works. A date will be announced closer to the time when we better understand how Covid-19 will impact our capacity to gather.
