RISING's Call to Artists program is an open invitation to artists to submit their ideas for bold, ambitious new work.

The Call to Artists was launched in May 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, as a way to support artists and cultivate works for RISING's future festival programming while in lockdown.

The call resulted in several works being commissioned for the 2021, 2022 and 2023 festivals.

The last Call to Artists happened in June/July 2022, which will see works commissioned for 2024 and beyond.
