If glory not payment is your objective, actors of all ages required for low budget zombie feature film being made in Nottingham from September onward.  “Low budget” means pay = zero, but you might see your name in the credits, which would help your friends if they don’t recognise you in costume and makeup.  Details from the StarNow website.

Slightly better than zero pay, the Gedling Arts Forum has a small (their word) pot of money for arts individuals and organisations in Gedling.  If that is you, the application deadline is 15 October – you can get the forms and more information from

If you fancy getting “a couple of grand of Channel 4 development money for a state of the art digital project“, then you have until 11 August to submit an outline of your idea. Three organisations/consortia will be shortlisted and asked to pitch to senior C4 staff in a fixed format.  Details are on the Media Festival Arts website.

You might not take criticism lying down, but you can unpack “the act of lying down” and participate in an international arts project, Figuring the Ground,  “A workshop devised and conceptualized by Sonia Khurana (India)”.  It takes place at the New Art Exchange, 26 to 28 July.  To re-assure, or disappoint, anyone hoping for a Spencer Tunick moment, the website suggests that you “come in comfortable clothing”. 

Another chance of glory is right here: have you submitted an entry for the Creative Nottingham Image competition?  The deadline is 7 August, and the winning entries will be used as the front side of our first printed postcard marketing campaign.  Several entries are in already, you can see them, enjoy them, and gain inspiration from them – visit our Community Site and scroll.
