Artist Commissions – Art Bed and Breakfast (A B&B), Blackpool

Deadline: Monday 11 April 2016.

Art Bed and Breakfast (A B&B) is re-imagining the traditional Blackpool Bed and Breakfast hotel for the 21st Century. We are renovating a traditional seafront B&B (there are over 3000 B&B’s in Blackpool) with every aspect being a potential artist commission – from whole rooms to tiny details, from exterior facades to daily procedures.

The aim of A B&B is to become a self-sustaining entity as part of a new cultural landscape. All profits will be re-invested into:

  • Further commissioning and programming;
  • Talent and professional development for artists and creative producers;
  • The continued development of A B&B as a social and creative space to engage artists and communities

What we are commissioning…

We are looking for proposals from artists to create site specific permanent or semi-permanent art works to be integrated into the physical structure and operations of the building from spring of 2016. The work will be commissioned by A B&B (Community Interest Company) and supported by LeftCoast, Arts Council England and Clore Duffield Foundation。
