We are looking to commission 3 individual artists or artist collectives who have graduated from Lancashire-based degree programmes to deliver an artistic project / piece of work that responds to the National Festival of Making themes.
These commissions seek to offer supported opportunities to ensure that 2020 Graduates have the opportunity to make new and exciting work during this period of significant global change.
The Open Call is an invitation for 2020 graduates of creative, cultural industry and art degree programmes based in Lancashire, to consider what they would like to create as part of the new Festival of Making programme delivered in the autumn of 2020 & Spring 2021 – we are seeking imaginative and distinctive ideas that engage our multi generational and diverse audiences and which align with our work.
Festival of Making Themes:
We are open to projects that are deliverable as part of our 2020 Autumn and Winter/Spring 2021 programme.
We’re open to all ideas, that may include:
Throughout the commission, graduates will receive mentoring from the Festival Directors as well as support in realising the logistical side of projects from the festival team.
In this commissioning cycle, we are interested in hearing from candidates from all diversity groups, particularly candidates from Black, Asian and Diverse Ethnic heritage groups.
Deadline for submissions: 10am, Wednesday 9th September
