There’s one simple truth about starting out in this industry.

It’s unbelievably tough to get seen.

The pandemic has made it harder.

NSDF want to help.

We are launching NSDF HUB: a national, year round, curated online space for young people to get their work seen.

It’s free and open to all 16-25 year olds.

We will curate, mentor and digitally showcase new work from young artists and companies, and help to publicise and connect you.


If you want your work seen by an Artistic Director but you can’t persuade them to travel, this will be a place for you.

If you have a work in progress piece that you want to present in order to find other young artists to collaborate with, this will be a place for you.

If you’ve pioneered a new form of digital hybrid work that you want to share , this will be  a place for you.

If you’ve made something you know matters, that you love and you want to get out there, this will be a place for you.


We’ll consider every type of work, so don’t feel limited in any way.

Every part of NSDF HUB will be free, and it will be free to anyone to watch.

You will own your work.

All we want is to give people the chance to see it.

NSDF exists to create new art, new artists and new communities.

Submissions for NSDF HUB are rolling so drop us a line with your ideas at any time. 


Email us at info@nsdf.org.uk with your work, your ideas or any questions you have.

If you have a piece of work you’d like us to consider, please include a link to the piece and a little bit of information telling us about you.

If you have an idea or a query we’ll be back to you as soon as we can.
