Lancaster Arts hosts commissions all year-round that invite participants to have a direct role in the creation of the work. If this is of interest, please get in touch with us at producers@lancasterarts.org.

This autumn we are thrilled to be commissioning artists Gillian Lees and Adam York Gregory to create Taking the Time; asking residents of Lancaster District for a time of day that is especially important to them. All these times will lead to a sonic landscape of the people of Lancaster’s relationship with time, hosted in the city.

Lancaster Arts has frequent opportunities for short term placements and internships. One of our marketing placements has written a blog about her experiences last year here.
