Description

Responding to Visual Arts Commissions Workshop

This workshop has been designed to provide you with information about two new commissioning opportunities to be offered by Durham County Council. You will get to meet the commissioners and find out what they are looking for in proposals. We’ll be offering advice on how best to present your work, prepare a budget and demonstrate your capacity to manage projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to view the gallery space.

The first opportunity, Gala Open, is to create a new temporary, site responsive work in any media for exhibition in the new Gala Gallery space within the Gala Theatre in the heart of Durham. The exhibition will run from 20th May to 17th June 2018. Applications are invited from artists living, working or studying in County Durham who are within ten years of graduating. Proposals within a wide range of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture, digital, sound, film or installation will be welcome. A commission fee of up to £2,000 to include all materials, installation costs and artist fees will be awarded to the successful applicant.

The second opportunity is to exhibit in an Outdoor Art Exhibition on 9th and 10th June as part of, an inaugural Visual Arts Festival (5th June to 17th June) which will feature a wide range of visual arts activity appealing to a variety of audiences, from families to students and arts professionals.
