Artist Commission with Root n Fruit community allottment, Appetite

Deadline: Monday 16 November 2015

Two opportunities to work with a Community Allotment in Stoke-on-Trent to engage local people and imagine the future!

Appetite and Root ‘n’ Fruit are looking to work with an artist(s)/arts organisation to devise and deliver a creative project in Mott Place allotments, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. This project is designed to raise the profile, improve the physical appearance and strengthen connections within the site amongst existing plot-holders and also to the wider surrounding areas.

We anticipate the artist/arts organisation will collect information, knowledge, stories from plot-holders and represent this in the work that will be produced on-site. It is hoped this project will provide the impetus to bringing the plot-holders on the site together and raising the usage and profile of the site in the local community.

The partnership would like to work with an artist(s) to explore two key areas within the project:

To develop a communal area for the Root ‘n’ Fruit allotments to increase the number of people enjoying and using the space creatively;
To undertake an allotment residency to develop ideas for working with artists to how the allotment could be developed and animated in 2016 and beyond.
We are looking for artists from any discipline to submit a proposal for a residency with the group over a negotiated period of time between November & December 2015.

Deadline for applications and shortlisting: 16 November 2015, 12pm

The total maximum budget for both projects is £9,000. This total will be divided between the two projects.
