Open Call, Expressions of Interest, National Time and Tide Bell project

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Time and Tide Bells are part of a unique, UK wide project initiated and created by artist and musician Marcus Vergette.  Its purpose is to celebrate and reinforce connections in local communities, between different parts of the country, between the land and sea, between ourselves and our environment.

In sites all around the coast of the UK the specially created bronze bells ring due to the impact of the waves at or around high tide.  The first bell was installed 10 years ago and in 2018 we received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to expand the reach of the programme.  Currently 7 bells are installed and 7 sites are under development.

The bells are or will be all in locations where individuals and communities have developed an appreciation of the power of the bells as public artworks, as a warning about the effect of climate change and as a comment on sea level rise. They are a growing contribution to each location’s identity –  past, present and future – and serve as a focus  and catalyst for dialogue, shared experience and community action.

We are inviting Expressions of Interest from artists or arts organisations in a broad range of disciplines interested in working with us. The aim is to create a project that will link the very varied bell communities to make the whole greater than the sum of the parts, and which will explore a core theme – changing sea levels.

Deadline: 
08/16/2020

No fee for EoI, £500 for short-listed artists to expand on their ideas
