Graphic/Street Art for Oxford City Centre Window

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Makespace Oxford is looking for a bold street or graphic artist to transform a street facing window into an exciting and engaging urban art piece.

What the space will be: The Community Works will be a dynamic community action hub located in the Oxford city centre for social enterprises and progressive organisations. 

Project Background: Makespace Oxford transforms empty and underused  buildings into dynamic hubs for community action, creativity and social change. They support socially conscious organisations to build a community by providing  affordable space to work and collaborate.

Tone: Exciting, Progressive, Bold, Local, Accessible, Profound, Inviting, Provocative

The world has changed a lot this year. Our sense of normality has been challenged. We’ve become more aware of our need for connection and community and through this have seen creative and generous altruism and brilliant grassroots organising in reaction to these unique challenges. We’re looking for an artist who can express their vision while addressing these current affairs and championing community action, creativity and social change in a unique, even provocative way. (Some of our primary stakeholders are Oxford University Colleges and the Oxford City Council so it is important to make sure that the piece does not offend.) 

The window should be bold and attention grabbing, get people from across the street at the train station interested in the space and inspire engagement and/or participatory action from passers by. They should be excited that the space is being developed, and to be inquisitive enough to look us up online. The piece does not need to be explicitly about Makespace or The Community Works but its theme needs to fit alongside what we do – using empty space in Oxford, providing affordable space for purpose driven organisations, creating space for community, and encouraging civic discourse. 

FULL SPEC: 

The piece should cover the windows in such a way that the public cannot see into the space behind from walking by, as there will be construction work happening behind the windows that we want to obscure. It does not have to cover the whole window, but should cover at least half to two thirds of the window from the bottom up.

There are four adjacent square windows which are all 1980mm x 1880mm

Media choice is up to the artist, however, the piece will be on display for only 3-6 months, depending on the renovation schedule for the ground floor space. It should be easily removable without damage to the windows or fascia.

Prize summary: 
£800
Prizes Details: 

Budget for this project is £800, including design and execution.

Eligibility:

The Oxford Arts Alliance is having a national juried exhibition in September called "Climate Change: What Will You Do To Help?". We're asking artists to respond to one or more of these questions with your art:

What can you do?

What will you do?

What are you doing?

What if we don’t?

Our juror for this themed exhibition is Emily Rosmus of the Ned Smith Center. Emily joined the Ned Smith Center in January 2019 and serves as the Education Coordinator, scheduling and leading educational programs aiming to bring art and nature together in a way that benefits both. She obtained a B.S. degree in Biology and a minor in Fine Arts from Saint Francis in Loretto, PA in 2014 and discovered her passion for environmental education shortly thereafter. She has always enjoyed the arts, dabbling in sketching, photography, and watercolor, and finds the Ned Smith Center a perfect environment to bring her two passions together and encourage others to do the same. She and her husband, Travis, recently bought their first home in Dauphin, PA, and live with their dog, Clara. When not working, she enjoys hiking, reading, running, and making sure Clara is living her best life.

Pegasus is excited to open application for the SPARK supported artist programme – inviting artists and companies to work with Pegasus from July 2018 – July 2019 to develop a new production for young audiences.

Pegasus is a pioneering force creating the present, challenging and shaping the future and making an enduring impact on the vitality of the performing arts locally, regionally and nationally.

We believe passionately that young people are the changemakers of the future. We nurture young artists and leaders providing unique opportunities for them to be influential in the arts and wider community.

The SPARK supported artist programme provides artists and companies of all levels with the space and skills development needed to turn their bold new ideas into a reality.

We’re looking to support new work for families and young audiences (aged 0-25) across the spectrum of performing arts that represents the vibrant and diverse community of East Oxford. We particularly welcome applications from artists whose experiences are less visible in ‘mainstream’ arts programming including BAME, LGBTQ+ and / or disabled artists.

The year long programme will provide bespoke support for four artists/companies based on their individual needs to cultivate, catalyse and develop innovative new productions.

SPARK artists at Pegasus have access to:
•Free rehearsal space
•Production days with our professional technical team
•Showcase events such as SPARK Night (performance scratch event, Spring 2019)
•Dramaturgical support with our Artistic Joint CEO
•Fundraising & marketing advice
•Opportunities to collaborate with Pegasus Young Companies & youth groups
•Network with artists & companies specialising in different areas of performance
