Our collective isolation highlights that all forms of community are now more important than ever, and it is vital that we find mechanisms to support each other through this precarious time. In the landscape that we have found ourselves in, it is clear that many artists, writers and thinkers have had exhibitions, opportunities and subsequent fees cancelled for the foreseeable future. In response to this, we have established TRANSMISSIONS an online platform that commissions artists to share their work within a classic DIY TV show format.
