Deadline: Friday 14 August 2015
Blaze is seeking expressions of interest from artists that use digital media including light and sound media who would like to be considered to engage with young people from the local area in producing a piece/ installation. We will be looking to utilize the spaces in Fleetwood Library in an imaginative way. The experience will feature as part of Blaze Festival in October 2015.
The artist’s will develop a piece based on Alternative worlds. We expect that the artist will guide the young people in the design possibilities and practicalities using the library space to produce a quality piece in the library. This will be done via the artist working with local groups of young people.
All expression of interest proposals will be considered carefully by a selection panel.
Our priorities for selections are:
Proposals from artists producing innovative and high quality work. We are particularly interested in proposals from North West artists but proposals from artists outside of this area will still be considered.
Applicants must be registered as a company or self-employed and be able to provide proof of status.
It is not essential to have had experience of engaging young people in a project similar to this, but if you have done in the past please include this in your application. Also please consider the age group you will be working with when writing your submission.
There is an artist fee of £1500attached to this project which will cover the director’s time for all workshops, development work, launch event, all travel, accommodation and other expenses.
There will be additional budget of up to £500 for materials and installation.
Please include the following when sending us your proposal:
– Brief outline of initial ideas of how you would interpret and approach the project
– Outline of your ideas including how you would plan to work with young people
– Details of materials/resources you might need for sessions
– Details of any specific technical requirements/specifications
– Links to websites containing examples of previous work
