A commissioned opportunity for two writers. SVA in collaboration with artist Colin Higginson are looking to commission two writers to produce a written response to the 'In the Manner in Which it Appears' exhibition at SVA’s John Street gallery in Stroud, Gloucestershire, which will be taking place from 15th May - 5th June 2021. Deadline: 15th April

SVA in collaboration with artist Colin Higginson are looking to commission two writers to produce a written response to the 'In the Manner in Which it Appears' exhibition at SVA’s John Street Gallery.

As well as a written response to the artwork each writer will run a creative writing workshop to engage participants in responding creatively to the exhibition. The exhibition and Call and Response will conclude in a finished publication and public event. The commissioned writers will take residence in the gallery space for 3 days each to develop a written piece in response to the exhibition.

An interest in the relationship between visual art and writing is essential. The exhibition explores ideas of nature, nostalgia imitation and authenticity.

We are actively seeking applications from emerging writers from diverse backgrounds who have not been commissioned before as well more experienced writers with higher public profile.

Fee: £1000

How to apply

If you are interested in this commission please send us your expression of interest as a written short statement or up to 5 min audio/ video and examples of work. CV’s are welcomed but not essential.

Deadline: 15th April
