Artist call out: Trouser Town, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival

Deadline: Wednesday 4 November 2015. Paid.

Hebden Bridge invites site specific artistic responses to its 2016 Festival theme, TROUSER TOWN

Hebden Bridge has been a community of makers and doers for centuries and in its garment making heyday, produced 20,000 pairs of trousers a week. With a combination of site specific commissions and programmed activity, TROUSER TOWN will link the artistic ambition and output of the festival to the history of the locale; an innovative outreach model for engaging residents, visitors, artists alike.

The work will be premiered at next year’s Arts Festival between 24 June- 3 July and needs to involve outreach and community engagement.

The budget is a maximum of £7000 and the awarding of commissions is wholly dependent upon the successful outcome of our Grants for the Arts application (January 2016)

We are inviting artists and producers to submit their project plans and draft budgets to by 9am, 4 November 2015.
