2 Artist Commissions: River Public art project, Eden Rivers Trust

Deadline: 12 noon, Thursday 28 April 2016

We would like to invite expressions of interest from artists or artist collectives to work on projects in Carlisle and Appleby as part of our Cherish Eden project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The commissions offer an opportunity for an artist (or artist collective) to design, develop and deliver a creative project for one of two Cumbrian communities affected by the flooding in winter 2015.

In each project, the artist will work collaboratively with the local community to develop a temporary Art Trail along the rivers in the respective areas.

It will involve the artist delivering a number of workshops that result in the creation of a high-quality Art Trail.

The aim of the overall project is to encourage people to explore their local river environment through creativity and the arts, to share and express their ideas and experiences of the river.

Two commissions are on offer
Commission 1 (Appleby): £5,000
Commission 2 (Carlisle): £9,000

For further information please download the River Public Art Project Briefs for each project, or contact Jane Davies, Heritage and Outreach Coordinator at jane@edenrt.org , tel: 01768 866788.

Deadline for expressions of interest:
12 noon, Thursday 28 April 2016
