Bloc Projects is pleased to invite proposals for works to be presented on our new Eyre Lane billboard.

Applications are welcome from visual artists working in any discipline, including those who may not usually work in two dimensions. Applicants must be current or new members of Bloc Projects – find out more about the full range of member benefits and how to join here.

Successful applicants will be paid a fee of £150, and the selected works will be on display for one month in 2016. Bloc Projects will cover all printing costs.
