Are you an experienced cultural producer?
The Nine Elms team want to hear from you!
Wandsworth Council are seeking to commission an experienced cultural producer or creative company to develop options and assess the feasibility of a large-scale processional performance event to celebrate the launch of the Northern Line Extension in Autumn 2021.
The Northern Line Extension (NLE) is the first major Tube extension since the Jubilee Line Extension 20 years’ ago. The £1.1bn project will connect the Northern Line with two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station, both of which will display new commissions from Art on the Underground.
Crossing the boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth and Wandsworth, the project is on track to open in Autumn 2021 and the 3.2km twin-tunnels will connect residents and visitors to the regeneration projects that have transformed the area.
The project is ambitious in scope and will require a partnership across three boroughs. To get things started, Wandsworth are commissioning an experienced cultural producer or creative company to develop options for the route and performance. We’re excited about the potential for pyrotechnics, light or movement so that we might capture, from the air, the image of the NLE in its entirety.

The deadline for applications is Monday 16 November at 5pm. We will notify the successful applicant by Friday 20 November.
