The kitchen table can be a space of radical possibility! That’s why today Heart of Glass are announcing Home Work, new micro-commissions on the theme of ‘care’.
– 10 x micro commission opportunities (£300 each) on theme of ‘care’
– For artists, freelancers, and collaborators
– St Helens, Merseyside and beyond.
– Deadline: 12 April
What does care look like? How do we recognise it, how do we value it? Care is a central element of the programme at HoG. Their programme only happens because they work with a whole ecology of people who care – artists, community workers, facilitators, activists, hosts, producers.
What could this look like? This opportunity is open to any form that your work might take – for example a performance, a sound piece, an online conversation or masterclass, a zine, a blogpost, an image – anything which considers, embodies, speaks to the theme of care.
Thinking about ‘care’
Heart of Glass are not interested in the making of stuff for the sake of making more stuff. Be honest – if you’d like to use this fee to spend some time thinking about how to support your community, share that.
This is only a little support (equivalent to an average artist day fee). Please only spend up to 8 hours on this. Heart of Glass understand that our circumstances are all different. Whatever way you’d like to structure your work on this is the right way!
The team are prioritising applications from communities who are at the heart of their programme. If you identify as disabled, working class, LGBTQ+ or if you have refugee status, let them know.
