Call for artists

Come Together: Artist Commission

Artist Com­mis­sion Call­out at KWMC, Come Togeth­er Pro­gramme, June to Octo­ber 2021

Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC) are looking to commission four South West based artists, working in any medium, who are experienced in working with communities and looking to develop new skills in mixing digital and physical arts practices.

The commissioned artists will work in and collaborate with Knowle West residents (either remotely or in person) between July – October to co-create and showcase new hybrid work that explores inclusive ways to come together. You will be supported and coached to develop your practice by KWMC producers, national partners (including MAIA Group, Grizedale and Onion Collective), critical friends and a creative cohort.

Fee: £3,000 each, inclusive of VAT
Additional budget available for: creative collaborators, community collaborators, materials and access (such as travel, BSL, translation etc.).

As this project is exploring how to co-create more inclusive hybrid (physical plus digital) spaces, we particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of finding digital or physical spaces to be ableist, ageist, racist, classist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic.
