MIDLANDS-BASED ARTISTS NEEDED FOR EXCITING PARTICIPATORY ARTS PROJECT
Are you a professional artist or company with an idea for a project that can tell a story of community life and/or place? Live & Local want to hear from you!
LivingRoom is an exciting creative participatory arts project that links professional artists to community/voluntary groups across the East and West Midlands to collaborate and create work that will culminate in a final shareable piece. The project was launched by Live & Local during the first lockdown and has been expanding over the past two years.
Live & Local are looking for artists who work in one or more of the following artforms:
· Spoken Word
The project could focus on environmental areas, social issues, be based on local history, or could capture both the idyll and challenges of rural life. At this stage, the idea should be non-location specific and broad enough to appeal and excite a range of potential communities. You will ideally have some experience of working with communities to devise and create work and have a particular interest in communities in rural areas.
How will the project work?
– Each commission is worth £1500.
– Each selected artist/company will receive an initial payment of £250 (from the fee) regardless of whether their project is selected by a community. The remaining £1250 will be paid in two equal instalments.
– There are 14 commissions in total which will be shared across eight counties
You need to submit your proposal by 5pm on Monday 30th May, via an online form
Your project will need to take place between September 2022 and June 2023
Live & Local are committed to making the process as accessible as possible so if you have access needs, please contact a member of the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01926 402 173
