Commission for socially engaged artist/collective
Deadline: 25/10/2019 | Published: 03/10/2019 | Nicola Thompson
#makingourspace is the campaign capturing the development of our resident-led space in Flaxley Road, Selby. It is also our community engagement strategy. Our story. We are looking for creatives to develop new, exciting and engaging work with our community and help tell this story.
Selby Big Local invites proposals from creatives, collectives and organisations to artistically respond to the new resident-led space we are developing in Selby after our recent purchase of an old two-storey Co-op shop in the Flaxley Road area. We would hope for a final piece of work that the public could view/interact with.
Ideally, this project will be developed and delivered during November and December this year.
In the initial phase of the development of our space, we want a project co-created with our community and are particularly interested in work that will appeal to young people. The project will respond creatively to the space and the potential use of it, understanding the daily lives of people living in the Selby Big Local area and how they might interact with the space. This will be using our existing engagement findings and new outcomes as part of the creative work.
We are keen to develop a creative approach to community engagement and the artist must work closely with our community engagement worker. The hope is that this project will act as a catalyst for developing further creative projects as the space becomes a key part of the Selby Big Local area, supporting and inspiring residents.
We welcome enquiries and are happy to show interested creatives around the space before an application is submitted. Please submit a proposal with a maximum of 600 words and examples of previous projects you have been involved with.
Project Fee: £1,500 plus £500 materials fee
Application Deadline: Friday 25th October
