Independent Biennial 2018 are offering commissions covering all councils, and in Knowsley they want to commission work by emerging artists. The commission is for £1000 to cover time and materials.
There are several potential locations for the commission, ranging from public space to shop units, permanent and temporary, so they are seeking expressions of interest without a theme. The goal of the Knowsley Commission is to highlight the ongoing talent development voice that exists already in Knowsley.
Practitioners from all areas of visual art can apply, but it is preferred that applicants have a connection to Knowsley (past or present, personal or professional). The commission encourages applications from artists from diverse backgrounds with unique perspectives.
You may apply as a group, individual artists, or organisations.
To apply send 500 words outlining your proposed activity, a brief history of your practice (2-300 words), artists CV, and up to 5 images of your work (as .jpeg files each below 1MB) to [email protected] by 9am on the 15th May 2018.
Applications sent after this time will not be considered for commissions, but may still be considered for the open programme.
