Opportunity : Come Together Artist Commissions

Knowle West Media Centre are excited to launch a new programme of public events, training and co-creation called ‘Come Together’The programme is designed to support artists and communities to develop new skills in hybrid (digital + physical) arts practices and explore new inclusive ways to come together.

Artist call-out

We are looking to commission four South West based artists, working in any medium, who are experienced in working with communities and looking to develop new skills in mixing digital and physical arts practices

The commissioned artists will work in and collaborate with Knowle West residents (either remotely or in person) between July – October to co-create and showcase new hybrid work that explores inclusive ways to come together. You will be supported and coached to develop your practice by KWMC producers, national partners (including MAIA Group, Grizedale and Onion Collective), critical friends and a creative cohort.

Fee: £3,000 each, inclusive of VAT
Additional budget available for: creative collaborators, community collaboratorsmaterials and access (such as travelBSL, translation etc.). 

As this project is exploring how to co-create more inclusive hybrid (physical plus digital) spaces, we particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of finding digital or physical spaces to be ableist, ageist, racist, classist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic.
