Entangled is a week-long outdoor and online festival heading to Morecambe Bay this September.
They want to commission four artists who are living in North West England and working in any art form. You’ll need to be curious about, and keen to respond to, current research in environmental science and digital technologies.
You’ll have full support from the research team when developing your work, so you’re not expected to be an expert in these areas.
There are four commissions, one for each of the following themes: flooding, biodiversity, soils, and modelling futures. For additional info on each commission please see the full call at: https://www.ensembleprojects.org/call-for-artists-in-north-west-england/
Deadline for submissions to this call: 5pm (BST) Monday 5th July
Artists notified of selection decisions by: Wednesday 14th July
Online intro meeting: a date to be negotiated in July
Work-in-progress check-in: a date to be negotiated in early August
Work to be finalised by: Friday 10th September
What’s the fee?
The fee is £2000 for each commission and this includes any materials and transport costs.
If you have any access requirements please let us know and we will budget for interpreters or support in addition to this fee
How to apply:
They want to make it as quick and easy as possible for you to apply. Please email a short text, audio or video file, or illustrated explanation of why you’d like to get involved. This should be no more than 500 words or 5 mins in length.
Make sure you:
- Tell them a little about your creative process and what kind of art form(s) you work in.
- Include at least one link to some of your previous work online.
- Indicate if you are interested in a specific commission or open to working on any of them.
The selection panel will be made up of researchers and artists-in-residence on the Ensemble Team.
