We are excited to announce our next call for artists submissions for our forthcoming exhibition ‘Hiraeth’ - The show opens on 24th March 2024.

Hiraeth is a Welsh word that has no direct English translation. However it’s likened to a homesickness tinged with grief and sadness over the lost or departed… A blend of homesickness, nostalgia and longing, "hiraeth" is a pull on the heart that conveys a distinct feeling of missing something.

We would love to receive an array of work which you as artists feel is embodied with a sense of loss and/or longing for something: be it a place, a loved one, a home, a belonging or pretty much anything that fits seamlessly with what Hiraeth means to you.

Submissions Criteria & Information:

Open to all artists resident within the UK.

Open to all disciplines including ceramics and sculpture.

Open to artists aged 18 and over.

Maximum number of pieces submitted per artist - 3.

Submission to the call out is free/no fee - however if selected to exhibit in the show there will be a £10 per artist exhibition fee payable on selection.
