Market Place is building audiences for the arts by supporting new activity that reaches new audiences in the market towns of Forest Heath (Brandon, Mildenhall and Newmarket) and Fenland (Chatteris, March, Whittlesey and Wisbech).
As well as developing and delivering exciting and inspirational events in these towns, Market Place has also commissioned a range of artists, arts organisations and community groups to deliver their own new projects which reach new audiences.
Who can apply
Development Commissions are open to anyone wanting to contribute to building the creative offer in the market towns of Forest Heath and Fenland.
Creative businesses and professional artists are eligible to apply alongside voluntary arts groups, community organisations and young people.
In developing your commission Market Place would encourage you to collaborate with project partners to ensure that you have the capacity and skills to deliver your proposed idea.
It is essential that at least one person from the organisations who apply for the Development Commissions attend one of Project Bootcamps to be held on:
