BAME Live Artist (Call for Proposals), Lancaster Arts

BAME Live Artist (Call for Proposals), Lancaster Arts

Working together with Live Art UK (the national network of Live Art promoters), Lancaster Artsis now offering a Diverse Actions commission for a new piece to premiere as part of its Winter/Spring 2019 Season.

What are we looking for?

We are seeking to commission a piece of live art which features as its primary theme ideas of ‘place’ and ‘local identity’ or the ‘felt identity of a place’. We are particularly looking forward to receiving ideas which respond to the changing identity of Lancaster as a city or to its history. We are especially interested in commissioning pieces which could be site-specific, site-responsive, developed through socially engaged methodologies and/or involve local communities in Lancaster.

Who can apply?

For this opportunity, we welcome applications by artists from a BAME background who are:

–          based in the North of England (Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Cumbria, Durham, North Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire)

–          have 3 to 5 years of professional experience as an artist, as self defined (working within any art form, so long as your proposal is for a piece of Live Art)

What is on offer?

– A commission/artist’s fee of £3,000

– A materials budget of up to £500

– A marketing and evaluation budget of up to £500

– A wealth of in kind support – see website for details
