In Production is a new programme dedicated to enabling access to production and broadcast opportunities for emerging artists under 30 who work with audio or moving image. The programme is made possible by a partnership between BBC Arts and Arts Council England entitled New Creatives, a nationwide talent development scheme encompassing a series of commissioning opportunities for which the ICA is the London hub. 

We are on the lookout for artists who would like to produce a new work intended for broadcast on the BBC with the help of our partners, Chisenhale Gallery, Dazed Media, NTS, SPACE, the Visible Institute at Kingston School of Art and Werkflow.

Our fourth Open Call is now live, with submissions closing at 6pm on Monday 5 October. 
New Creatives is a series of commissioning opportunities developed by BBC Arts and Arts Council England for emerging artists under 30 who work with audio or moving image. The scheme will take place over two years and will encompass four open calls. Alongside New Creatives, the ICA will be offering additional opportunities, events and workshops as part of the ongoing programme, In Production.
