Moving Out 2022

Arts Practice
Deadline: 07.02.2022
Published: 02.12.2021

The Work Room and Tramway are collaborating, to commission two choreographers to expand their practice through creating or adapting work for public sites and outdoor contexts in the local area around Tramway as part of its Beyond Walls season during summer 2022.


Through this collaboration we are aiming to: 


  • Enable choreographers to explore adapting their practice, including existing work, for outdoors and public spaces;
  • Create new opportunities to connect with the local area and communities around Tramway, namely Pollokshields & Govanhill. 


For this round of Moving Out, we have a total budget of £18,000 and are keen to support two commissions of scale and ambition.  The supported projects will culminate in site-specific or outdoor performances in the local area around Tramway areas during the summer of 2022 as part of Tramway’s Beyond Walls programme. Beyond Walls is a season of contemporary performance, visual art and creative participation which engages with the local audience outside the physical limits of the Tramway building and often engages with local community - ‘Community Architects’ in its creation. 


See CALL OUT for full details and information on how to apply.

Applications will be assessed on the strength of the proposal or idea presented and the potential of this project to connect with our local area and communities.

We recognise there are barriers to working in dance and that these challenges are felt more acutely by some people. We are committed to increasing the diversity of people working in dance and especially welcome applications from those who identify as having characteristics currently under-represented within dance. This includes disabled people, those with parental responsibilities and people from working-class backgrounds.  We are particularly keen on supporting people of colour and those from minority ethnic backgrounds in support of Tramway's Making the Change initiative that centres artists of colour.

Applications should be returned by email to by 7 February 2022, please note 'Moving Out 2022' in email the subject. You will hear the decisions by the end of March 2022.
