Tura Adapts 2020 Commissions Online

Tura’s online commissioning program Tura Adapts is now live.

Tura Adapts is a program designed to enable the creation of new work and its delivery in these times of restrictions.

This first phase is created across three programs; @TheRootsNo Borders, and A Different View, to both create new online content, and support practitioners for whom both opportunities to earn and to create have diminished so unbelievably.

Completed programs from @TheRoots and No Borders are available now with more still in progress. A Different View will be delivered across the coming months.

Artists were encouraged to think digital and adapt to the isolated space, creating outside of the regular performer-to-audience world. The outcomes are a combination of audio and video and audio-only, with composers and video artists attempting to navigate and make sense of their newfound isolation.
