Announcing the fourth DNweekeND – we want YOU!

8th – 10th September 2017

Deadline for applications:

12noon Monday 27th March 2017  

DNweekeND is a festival of arts in Doncaster town centre public spaces, arts venues, shop units and shopping centres – indoors and outdoors – for one weekend only.


Back for its fourth year, DNweekeND 2017 is teaming up again with the St. Leger Festival week.


We are looking for local and visiting artists and voluntary groups who wish to create exciting and vibrant public experiences that celebrate creativity in Doncaster and help us develop and engage new audiences. Small amounts of funding are available to help realise your ideas.


DNweekeND is for everyone! Whether you are an individual or a group; a community arts volunteer or a nationally-recognised collective: if you want to showcase high quality work in our town centre and genuinely engage Doncaster audiences, then we want to hear from you!


Last year 20 unique and inventive projects were commissioned as part of DNweekeND, allowing incredible opportunities for a range of artists and groups to develop and share their work with local and visiting audiences. 


Potential venues for DNweekeND 2017


These are the currently proposed venues for DNweekeND 2017, including the types of work that will most likely be programmed for each venue:


·         Sir Nigel Gresley Square (Outdoor theatre, music and performances)

·         The Village at Waterdale Shopping Centre (Shop unit installations, outdoor music and walkabout performances)

·         Cast theatre foyer (Live performances, exhibitions)

·         Town centre historic buildings (Live performances, exhibitions)



Financial support:


We are able to offer small amounts to support/develop work – from £50 to a maximum of £1,200 (including VAT) - appropriate to the needs of your proposal.


So if you have an exciting participatory idea for the DNweekeND that offers Doncaster audiences something new, we want to hear from you!
