Statue Commission Opportunity

Share

City:

Eligibility:

A campaign has been launched to install the first statue of a black woman in one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings.

To mark International Women’s Day, St George’s Hall Charitable Trust has announced its intention to install a statue of Mary Seacole in the Great Hall – a woman believed to be Britain’s first nurse practitioner who devoted her time to nursing soldiers during the Crimean War.

The trustees believe this statue will not only pay tribute to the heroine, but it will also act as a ‘thank you’ to the NHS and the extraordinary scarifies they have made in keeping everyone safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A call out to artists is now open to apply to be considered to take on the role of creating a marble portrait statue that will take pride of place in the stunning Great Hall.  

The Mary Seacole statue will be the second female represented in St George’s Hall – the first was of pioneering health campaigner Kitty Wilkinson which was installed in 2012. There are currently 13 statues in total in the Great Hall.

Mass Energy Exhibition

Share

City:

Hello image makers.  

Do we miss the mass-energy of crowds and gatherings, or does the thought of being in a large group of people fill us with fear?

2020 was a year defined by social-distancing and physical separation due to the Covid19 pandemic. Based on new scientific data, we currently understand that crowds and mass gatherings pose a potential health risk to ourselves and broader communities. The Covid19 pandemic has transformed our collective behaviour. So much has changed to our social lives and the ways we engage in group activity. These changes are unprecedented and historical. 

To explore and consider these changes to society, Mass Energy has launched an open submission photographic zine and exhibition project that interogates our new relationship to crowds and mass gatherings in the age of social distancing. Mass Energy seeks to understand and address how we now feel about the phenomenon of crowds and mass gatherings during the Covid19 pandemic. We undertsand that the social lives of young people have been affected all profits from this project will be donated to https://youngminds.org.uk/ 

Interpret the theme individually and submit your images that capture organised and spontaneous crowds and mass gatherings. For example: mosh pits, protests, raves, street parties, sports, family and community events, religious ceremonies, and other large collective events. Your image submissions might of been taken before the Pandemic and produce a nostalgia or during the pandemic and contain new and unique aspects of our new health concerns.

Submit your photographs of crowds and mass gatherings that may have been taken before or during the pandemic to: massenergyphoto@gmail.com 

A selection of submissions will be featured in a printed photo zine, designedand published by photographer, @tommy_sussex. Selected pictures will be exhibited online and at a physical exhibition in London following the easing of lockdown restrictions in the U.K. The process of being part of this project will connect image-makers and explore how we view mass gatherings in 2021 during the largest health crisis of the modern era.

Dogs Trust is leading the way in Cardiff with a new and exciting public art trail in collaboration with Snoopy and public art producers, Wild in Art. The wonderful city of Cardiff will be hosting A Dog’s Trail from March – June 2022, where we will be taking adventurers (human and dog!) on a vibrant trail of over 50, giant Snoopy sculptures through the heart of Wales’ capital city.

Our aims are to provide a post-pandemic boost to local economy, to bring local communities together by educating and inspiring all those who come to visit, and showcase some of the regions unique, diverse and dog loving creative talent - and who better for us to team up with than the most iconic dog in the world – Snoopy!

We’ve set ourselves a target of recruiting at least 50 talented artists to design and decorate our Snoopy sculptures, and so we invite you to apply to take part by submitting a Snoopy sculpture design by 1st of July 2021.

For further details on how the trail works, to download the artist information pack or to submit a design for consideration, please visit adogstrail.org.uk/artists

Benefits to participating artists:

  • Receive £900 commission fee on completion of their Snoopy sculpture
  • The opportunity to showcase their work to thousands as part of a mass participation public art event
  • Have their design featured on the world’s most iconic illustrated dog
  • Be part of a unique, covid-safe event celebrating art, community pride and physical and mental wellbeing
  • Meet other artists and get the chance to work side by side in a Cardiff-based, communal art space – or transport your sculpture to your own studio
  • Engage with businesses who will sponsor our Snoopy sculptures
  • Support Dogs Trust in raising funds to care for over 14,000 dogs across the UK each year, and supporting the launch of our brand new Cardiff Rehoming Centre.

Throughout the world, sculpture trails see extensive mass-participation; visitors young and old come from far and wide, creating extensive long-term social, cultural and economic benefits for the host city and through sculpture sponsorship and a post-trail auction, raising vital and much-needed funds for charity.

Who are Dogs Trust?

We are the UK’s largest dog welfare charity with 20 UK Rehoming Centre’s and give love, care and undivided attention to over 14,000 dogs each year. We’re not new to Wales, as we’ve had a Rehoming Centre in Bridgend for over 50 years, but we’re especially excited to be opening our 21st centre in Cardiff which will allow us to care for an additional 1,000 dogs each year and provide several jobs and volunteering opportunities within the community.

A Dog’s Trail is an exciting new adventure for Dogs Trust – and we can’t wait to work with you. The trail’s aim is to raise significant funding towards our work so that we can continue to provide our services for those who need them the most. But we also know that it is going to be a spectacular exhibition – bringing together many communities through the creation and display of sculptures trailing through the city – a true showcase of Cardiff as a place to visit, love, live, work and play.

Thank you so much for your time, and we hope to hear from you soon.

The A Dog’s Trail team at Dogs Trust.
