Ilkley Literature Festival Fringe are hugely excited to be launching Chain Reactions – a collaborative, cross-artform digital project that encourages participants to develop and stretch their creative work in new ways, inspiring and enthusing each other, and giving audiences a fresh and exciting experience.

Ilkley Literature Festival Fringe are hugely excited to be launching Chain Reactions – a collaborative, cross-artform digital project that encourages participants to develop and stretch their creative work in new ways, inspiring and enthusing each other, and giving audiences a fresh and exciting experience.

Chain Reactions will include three stages:

Stage 1:

Five new pieces of work will be commissioned across a range of art forms. These will be made available to view on our website and social media channels.

Stage 2:

People living across the Yorkshire region will be challenged to get creative and respond to work featured in Stage 1, using a different artform than the original piece.

Stage 3:

The chain reaction will continue and people living across the Yorkshire region will be encouraged to respond to works that were produced in Stage 2.

We are now looking for Stage 1 applicants to kickstart the project.

In Stage 1 we are looking for proposals for creative provocations. We will commission five applicants based in Yorkshire to produce finished pieces of work for a fee of £200. The works should respond to the word ‘Spark’ and can take any of the artforms listed below:

  • Dance
  • Spoken word
  • Film
  • Music
  • Poetry (max. 20 lines)
  • Stage plays/monologues  
  • Visual art (e.g. prints, sculpture, paintings, photos, textiles)
  • Storytelling


Please be aware that we are not looking for highly-polished pieces, but something that will provoke and encourage a “chain reaction” and inspire others’ creativity.

Deadline for proposals is 5pm on Mon 25 January 2021.
