Collide: A programme to support 10 emerging LGBTQIA+ artists working in & across any medium to develop new visual or performance work.

We’re looking for bold, brave & unapologetically queer ideas. We are seeking 5 visual artists and 5 performing artists (or perhaps you do a bit of both?) to be part of a development programme which will include mentorship, sharings with feedback, a small seed commission and a showcase to perform in July 2023.


We want to create a vibrant & supportive artistic community- with artists benefiting not only from the cash, the space & the time- but also the real life connections between each other. 


Co-produced by Stanley Arts & Raze Collective as part of This is Croydon, London Borough of Culture 2023, with support from Arts Council England.
