Cre­ative Youth Net­work is look­ing for emerg­ing and ear­ly career artists aged 1625 years old to cre­ate art­work for their new cre­ative enter­prise hub

Creative Youth Network is looking for emerging and early career artists aged 16 – 25 years old to create artwork for their new creative enterprise hub in Bristol’s city centre, The Courts.

These paid commissions, of which there are two, are available for individual artists or collectives, with a particular focus on commissioning:

1 x artist or collective from a Global Majority Ethnic background

1 x artist or collective who identifies as Disabled

Creative Youth Network is looking to commission Bristol or South Gloucestershire-based young artists that represent the communities and cultural diversities of those areas, whilst providing opportunities for early career artists to gain commissioned work.

The two commissions are paid, with each successful applicant receiving £1000. This fee includes materials and equipment for making and presenting the finished artwork, and expenses to attend commission meetings with Creative Youth Network. Where required, Creative Youth Network can provide studio space for making the work at The Station, Bristol, BS1 2AG.
