Supported by the Belgrade Theatre and Coventry City of Culture Trust, Shut Down but Scratching is an online scratch night of original live performance, visual and digital art. The project will offer approximately ten micro-commissions of £200 to artists who consider themselves to be “early-career”.

They’re looking for live performance artists working across a range of different media (theatre-makers, musicians, spoken-word poets and dancers), as well as visual and digital artists, to create short pieces of work responding to the theme “imagine” for the online event on 15 April.
