Output Arts and Emergency Exit Arts have been commissioned by Southwark Council to create Spring Rising in March 2018, to follow on from our successful 2017 event Spring Waking. For this we will be creating:
Description of Commissions
Output Arts are commissioning two artworks from artists for the garden that reflect the themes arising from the Spring Rising story, one for £1000 and one for £750. We are open to artists adapting and showing existing work and appreciate that the commission fee lends itself to this. The artworks should have an interactive element, or allow the audience to linger and explore or contemplate the themes arising from the poem.
Preference will be given to artists who live or work locally to the Dulwich area. Emerging artists are encouraged to apply or artists who would like to take work outdoors for the first time. Some support will be given to commissioned artists by Output Arts and Emergency Exit Arts.
For more details and how to apply, please download the brief from here.
Deadline for submissions is: 1pm on Thursday 1 March 2018.
