Thames Festival Trust are now accepting applications for their Tide Changers Development Programme, aimed at young, diverse artists. They will receive support from the team to help deliver an amazing Totally Thames event.


Are you under 30? Are you developing a River Thames themed project? Do you want extra support from us to take part in Totally Thames 2021? We are thrilled to announce an exciting new opportunity for three early career artists.

We’re looking for artists, producers and performers who want to respond to the River Thames creatively with projects that appeal to young audiences, and we are open to ideas across all artforms including poetry, dance, exhibitions and more. A digital element must also be central to your project idea.

Deadline: 16 April 2021

To apply, you must be:

  • 30 years old or younger
  • Have experience on at least one artistic project.
  • Have a fully formed River Thames or water themed project or idea in development.
  • Planning on the event to take place in September 2021.
  • The event should be delivered to both a digital platform and an event space. We require all events to be multi-platform to ensure we can reach the widest and most diverse audience. We will also accept proposals for events which are digital only.
