- Apply for the Albany Rebels Legacy Commission of £1000 by 9am, 13 May
The Albany are looking for people with exciting ideas and would like to support you to turn them into reality. Maybe youve always wanted to make a performance, teach a workshop, present a fashion show or exhibition, facilitate a creative gathering or talk, or throw a party or a protest! Or maybe youve got an idea for something else entirely wed love to hear it.
In Spring 2019, the Albany announced our Rebels Season, running from 11 April 1 June 2019. The season is about politics, protest, breaking the mould and celebrating difference. We supported people to push boundaries and challenge what we might expect when they were making or pitching performances and projects for it. There were six new commissions as part of the Rebels season, which you can read more about by following this link.
This commission is called Rebels Legacy because we want to continue supporting work of this nature, but would like to try a more open and democratic process for choosing who gets funded. We are a community-orientated arts organisation, so are putting our money where our mouth is and committing £1,000 to whichever project is voted for by our communities. On 22 May 2019 there will be a FREE Pitches and Pizza Party at the Albany, where the people who come will vote for the project they would like to see happen. Whichever project gets the most votes will get £1,000, and then well all eat pizza!

We cant wait to hear your ideas.
