Artist call out: create a graphic for Cultivate

Oldham Coliseum Theatre is looking for a visual artist to create a graphic for our upcoming Cultivate Festival.

Cultivate is the Coliseum’s annual festival devoted to artist development, which this year will be from 10 – 15 June. For one week we invite emerging artists and the theatre makers of the future to take over the Coliseum building for opportunities which include open auditions, scratch nights, guest speakers and a variety of theatre-skills workshops. The full line up for this year’s Cultivate will be announced soon.


We would like a visual artist to create a graphic or image that we can use to promote Cultivate and throughout the festival. The chosen artwork will be included in our online and print channels. The artwork must reflect this vibrant artist development programme. More information about Cultivate can be found here: We welcome a variety of styles and interpretations and use of colour, font, imagery is up to the artist. This opportunity is open to everyone although we’re particularly keen to hear from Oldham, Greater Manchester and North West Artists.  

Oldham Coliseum will pay a fee of £200 to the chosen artist for their artwork.
