New North are pleased to announce our inaugural Emerging Artist Commission.

The New North Emerging Artist Commission is an opportunity for Melbourne/Naarm based composers, performers and sound artists aged 24 or younger to develop a new work of 15-30 mins duration for presentation at the final concert of New North's 2021 season, held at Brunswick Mechanics Institute on Thursday, October 7th. 


The successful applicant will receive a commission fee of $750 and an opportunity to have their work presented by an ensemble of up to four experienced performers. This performance will be professionally recorded and the successful application will be provided with high quality documentation for use at their discretion. 


We are pleased to have received wonderful submissions and would like to thank everyone who applied for sharing their ideas and their work with us. Applicants will be notified of the outcome shortly and the recipient will be announced publicly at our concert on August 5th.
