Open Call for Young Makers, Designers and Artists, Manchester Craft and Design Centre

We are excited to invite young UK-based artists, makers and designers to submit their work for this open call competition.

We have partnered with 42nd Street, a Manchester-based charity which supports young people aged 11-25 with their emotional wellbeing and mental health. We will be working with 42nd Street’s Creative Agents to select the winner and produce the exhibition.

The exhibition will take place at MCDC from 24th May to 1st September 2018, and will feature at least 3 selected makers.

There is a budget for this exhibition, which includes artist fees, expenses, travel and work transportation costs, a launch event, and a marketing and PR campaign.
