This brief invites proposals from experienced event organisers and curators to plan and deliver a public enlivenment programme, which will form part of the Wembley Park 2018 summer events calendar. The programme aims to help Wembley Park become recognised as a new creative neighbourhood for London, by inspiring and entertaining diverse audiences, ranging from residents and visitors to local employees and students. Working closely with our in-house marketing and event teams, providers will identify opportunities for site-specific pieces, which can work around our public spaces, as well as the major events already on our calendar. Proposed commissions can either be part of existing London-wide festivals, or be uniquely crafted for Wembley Park. Prior to the shortlisting phase, there will be an opportunity for providers to visit the site, discuss the brief in more detail with our in-house teams, and receive all the necessary practical and health & safety information. Shortlisted providers will then present their proposals during a formal pitching session. After the appointment of the successful provider, the contract will start no later than March 2018, to deliver a public enlivenment programme in Wembley Park from 1st June to 30th September 2018. Note: Proposals for small-scale, single enlivenment activities (as opposed to full programmes) may also be considered. We will prioritise full programme proposals, and subsequently evaluate single activity opportunities to fit around our full events programme.

We are looking for event specialists that have the ability to curate a programme of site-responsive activities, which are flexible enough to adapt to our rapidly changing public spaces, yet are able to stand out and appeal to a London-wide audience. Activities can relate to either specific art forms orcross multiple disciplines.  Examples of commissions may include:

·    Art/Photography Exhibitions

·    Busking Festivals

·    Food Festivals/Markets

·    Storytelling and poetry

·    Open-air Concerts and Performances

·    Digital/Video/Lights Art Installations

·    Paint Jams

·    Screenings of performances (such as ballets and operas)

·    Screenings of documentaries and films (e.g.  outdoor or pop-up structures)

·    Virtual reality events

·    Meet-ups

·    Arts & Crafts

·    Dance-based events (ranging from community to professional)

·    Scavenger hunts 

·    Meanwhile uses of undeveloped spaces

·    Silent Disco

·    Art Installations

·    Health & Wellbeing

·    Vintage Fairs

·    Cabaret

·    Immersive Theatre

·    Improv

·    Fireside Chats/Panel Sessions with Thought Leaders

·    Pop-ups

·    Walking Tours

·    Social media based events

·    Flashmobs

 

Ideally we’re not looking to repeat existing ‘Wembley’ events (e.g. endurance, large music festivals or sports-related projects) as we feel they wouldn’t challenge existing pre-conceptions around Wembley Park, but rather build on a reputation which the area is already globally renowned for.

Whilst we don’t have a specific audience size in mind for each enlivenment activity, we are hoping for relatively intimate experiences.

 

Upon awarding of the contract the appointed providers will manage the procurement process relating to each activity they propose. They will be responsible for developing event briefs, artist selection, contracts advice, integrating the programme with the wider Wembley Park events plan, programming of allocated budgets, supervision of works, coordinating with our in-house operations, commercial, marketing and PR teams.
