Independents Biennial is back with a festival that celebrates visual contemporary art across the entire Liverpool City Region, and they have commissions covering all councils. In the Wirral they want to commission work that links to other photographic events taking over the Wirral during summer 2018. The commission is for £1000 to cover time and materials, towards an exhibition at Birkenhead Priory.
They are seeking submissions from all art forms, but hope that the successful applicant will share connections with exhibitions around the Wirral during summer 2018, many of which have photography and local social history at their heart. There are two possible venues for the commission, one indoor and one outdoor, which will form a key part of Independents Biennial 2018.
Practitioners from all areas of visual art can apply, but it is preferred that applicants have a connection to the Wirral (past or present, personal or professional) and we encourage 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.
