This is a paid opportunity for an artist to work with the Enjoy Arts Team and the busy outpatient department at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. This commission is funded by Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.

Artist Fee - £2500 to cover approx.10 days’ work, which will include planning and facilitating workshop sessions, meeting with Yas Lime the arts inclusion co-ordinator throughout the project, as well as time to design the finished piece(s).

Production Fee – to be negotiated depending on the style of work produced. Workshop materials, production and installation costs will be covered by us.

There are also costs available for additional access needs.

Artist Specification (desirable + will be given priority)

  • Experience working with young people in arts and/or health contexts.
  • West Midlands Based.
  • Artists from groups currently underrepresented in the arts – for example those racialised as Black or Brown, artists from Gypsy or Traveller communities, those who identify as LGBTQIA+, working class, are D/deaf, disabled or neurodiverse etc.
  • Artists who have lived experience of using hospitals regularly.

Seeking Digital Artists and Musicians

Share

Eligibility:

Syntropy States is a small digital arts start-up with a big vision. We’re creating a platform that brings together the digital arts with breathwork, relaxation and meditation. 

 

We’re passionate about the role that art and music can play in people’s health and happiness and we want to help digital artists and musicians play a meaningful role in helping to heal our broken, stressed society. And that’s where you come in.

 

We’re looking for artists and musicians who want to share their work in meaningful ways to help social wellbeing by creating accessible art and music that provides a way to relax, reconnect and revitalise in an accessible way. Specifically, we are seeking to commission 14 short audio visual videos to be hosted on our forthcoming app “Syntropy”. Syntropy is a new and exciting way for the digital arts to not only entertain, but to also serve as an effective and widely available digital health tool.

 

Each visual and audio selection will receive £200, along with promotion, exposure to a large and growing audience and a digital arts residency within the Syntropy app and website.

 

Your video will appear as Video of the Week on the Syntropy app (launching soon) where it will reach a rapidly growing audience. After appearing as Video if the Week your video, and reference to you as the artist, will remain within the Syntropy app where users will be able to find it and use it any time they like.

Prize summary: 
Commission prizes £100 - £200
Prizes Details: 

The £200 will be awarded in the form of £100 for the art and £100 for the music. That means if you create both the art and the music you get £200. But if you create either the art or the music the £200 is shared as £100 each.

Open Call for Curatorial Projects

Open Call for Curatorial Projects

The BFI’s Film Feels season returns this summer, celebrating films’ unique ability to transport us, to illuminate ideas, and to spark conversations. This time round the overall theme is ‘hopeful’, and we’re looking to support three film events that fit Film Feels’ subthemes (outlined below) as part of our All Summer Long season of events.

Film Feels: Hopeful - subthemes:

Hope

Stories imbued with hope for new beginnings, better tomorrows and the goodness of humanity

Dreams of the Future

From smart cities and clean energy to food equity and social justice - whether fiction or non-fiction, films can help us to reimagine the future.

New Ways

Who gets to make films and who gets to see them? Showcasing short film, accessible formats, artists film and debut features from exciting new talent and exploring new approaches to bringing original and previously unheard voices to our programmes.

Who is this open call for?

This project is open to anyone from a background that is underrepresented in the film and cultural sector (for example you are from a community that experiences racism, you are neurodiverse, you are from the LGBTQIA+ community, you did not go to University, you had free school meals as a child  or you are a disabled person). There is currently a lack of diversity within film exhibition, and we’re committed to change by taking steps towards a more inclusive, interesting, and representative cultural sector. 

All applicants must be based in the UK.

What are we looking for? 

We're looking to fund three projects over the next few months - they could be short film programmes, conversational events, audiovisual interventions, unseen docs, archive finds, online happenings, family screenings - whatever you like, surprise us. We would expect applicants to demonstrate some previous experience and/or knowledge of programming and curating, and all projects must fall into one of the Film Feels’ themes outlined above.  

What money is involved?

Three proposals will be taken forward to be presented later this year, with each project given a budget of £750 to cover curation time and any rights clearances. Technicals, venues, and marketing will be covered separately. 

How are the applications assessed?

The applications will be assessed by a small, diverse panel of industry professionals, and will factor in the ambition, originality, feasibility, relevance, and audience-appeal of the projects. The three that score highest within these categories will be taken forward. 

We will let all applicants know the outcome by Monday 14 June 2021.

Whilst we invite potential applicants to get in touch with us with any questions regarding their project proposal or the application process, we are unfortunately unable to offer feedback to unsuccessful applicants.
