In the Making- Annual Art Commission 2019




The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) is working to empower local people to shape and influence the development plans for UK’s largest regeneration project. In March 2017, we were awarded funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England as part of their Great Place Scheme initiative. This national fund puts arts, culture and heritage at the heart of successful communities. Using this funding and along with local people, businesses and organisations we’ve curated an ambitious, three-year cultural programme that uncovers, connects and showcases the culture, creativity and heritage of London’s largest and most vibrant industrial area, Old Oak and Park Royal.

We’re now seeking expressions of interest from artists to engage with communities working, living and/or socialising in the area and locally based businesses to deliver the 2019 Annual Art Commission which responds to the heritage of Old Oak and Park Royal. The call is open to individual or groups of artists, you could be living and working both nationally or internationally, but a commitment to understanding the local context is essential. The Annual Art Commission will be managed and delivered by Create London, the Creative Programming Partner for OPDC’s Great Place Scheme.

Up to £50,000 is available which includes all artist fees and production costs.

Banff International Curatorial Institute Symposium: Living Agreement | Visual Arts





Program Overview

The Living Agreement symposium is an invitation to learn from artists, curators, and creative practitioners who reflexively engage relationships between institutions, artists, and publics as a form of artistic practice. 

Drawing on the work of artist Carmen Papalia and his proposal to consider accessibility as a temporary and relational practice, this three-day symposium asks how the triangulated relationships between artists, audiences, and institutions might be re-thought as a ‘living agreement.'

In this cross-disciplinary conversation, artists, curators, art historians, writers, and theorists will reflect on a range of themes. 

What does the program offer?

The Living Agreement symposium will feature presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and active engagement with a range of artistic practices and artists.

The symposium is designed to generate conversation and reflection around models for working together, including critical discourse around museum access; Indigenous methodologies and implications for western institutional models; legacies of institutional critique and current responses in artistic and curatorial practice; and intersections across these disciplines with current conversations in socially engaged art.

Who should apply?

This symposium is open to curators, art historians, writers and theorists, cultural critics, and researchers working within the field of visual arts.  Applicants should demonstrate an exhibition/publication history, and have completed formal training in visual arts or a related field at the post-secondary level or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers and communities.

Fees & Financial Assistance

Program Fee: $413.76+GST *

*This program fee is highly subsidized by Banff Centre. Additional financial support (up to 100%) is available to applicants without institutional affiliation or support.

Art Workshop Leaders




Art Workshop Leaders for ART EAT Festival - Call for proposals.

Deadline: 15th April 2019


ART EAT Festival is taking place along the Ipswich Waterfront on the 21 & 22nd September 2019.  We have a budget to deliver 16 x 2-hour free workshops to the attendees of the festival. Workshops generally need to be child-friendly and be open to people of all ages (in special circumstances and if essential a minimum age can be set).


We have 4 designated locations or ART STATIONS along the waterfront from which the workshops will be delivered.

Workshops need to be centred around the main themes of the festival; Urban Art, Creativity, Food, Community etc. They can use the pavement or walls as canvases, or as supporting structures. Evolving participatory artworks contributing to the festival landscape and general decoration are also encouraged.

Workshops need to be in designated spaces, so please consider where your activity will actually take place. If you would like to run a workshop in a particular place along the Ipswich Waterfront please mention this, we can move our ART STATION bases to suit the proposals we decide upon.

Proposals need to be Health and Safety aware (we can advise on this) so please bear in mind needs for crowd flow, safe use of tools, ladders or scaffold, materials, as well as water safety, slip hazards, rubbish and clearing up afterwards.

Proposals need to consider clean-up. We would like to leave things such as chalk and or washable materials, but anything that looks messy or does not deteriorate easily will need to be removed at the end of the festival, the artists will agree to do this as part of the workshops. The aim of the workshops should be to create beautiful work which everybody agrees should remain as a positive legacy to the artists’ and participants’ work and to the festival.

Once approved artists will be responsible for sourcing materials and equipment, coordinating and delivering the workshops. Artists are welcome to propose various workshops and deliver more than one workshop over two days. If a single group of artists want to run all workshops, this would be great. Final decisions will be based on ideas, so get those creative juices flowing.

N.B. the purpose of these proposals is not only for us to decide on what will take place but is also so that we can cover the H&S as well as inform major stakeholders and landowners of the planned activities that will take place on their land.

What will be provided as a basic space

2 x gazebos (more if required)

2 x tables

8 x chairs

1 or 2 volunteers/helpers per workshop

1 x board for advertising workshop times (will also be in printed program)

Artists fees - £125 per 2-hour workshop (including prep, set-up and take-down)

Materials budget - We have what we would consider an adequate budget for materials to cover all workshops. This will be allocated as required. Please include a budget proposal for all the materials you will need to carry out your workshop activities.

Essential requirements:

All workshop leaders will need DBS (valid within 3 years)

Artists must be available on the 21st & 22nd of September 2019

Portobello Wall Public Art Project: 2019 Comission





Portobello Wall Public Art Project

The Portobello Wall Public Art Project is an annual public art commission for a stretch of brick wall linking two of the most vibrant and well known market areas in London: Portobello Road and Golborne Road. Since the introduction of this project in 2009, successful installations have created a visual link between these two unique markets, and attract over 1.3 million visitors each year.

The budget for the commission is £11,000 inclusive of all artists’ fees, materials, labour and outreach programme costs.

This 100-metre long stretch of wall has proved an ideal setting to promote the work of local artists and encourage visitors to continue their journeys further up Portobello Road to the vibrant Golborne area.

Find out more about the history of the project here.

2019 Commission Brief

THEME: This is the twelfth commission for the Portobello Wall Art Project, with the following theme: Rhythm and Sound. From the dance-steps and steel-pan beats of Notting Hill Carnival to the bustle and banter of Portobello and Golborne Road markets; from momentous performances at the Tabernacle to the original Rough Trade Record shop; Rhythm and Sound is woven into the rich cultural heritage, identity and place of North Kensington. We are looking for an engaging art installation that creatively interprets the theme, drawing inspiration from the distinctive and diverse nature of the area.

Proposals should include ideas for potential outreach events complementing the installation. These could include artists’ talks or tours, school workshops, in situ and in other locations in North Kensington. Prospective and confirmed partner organisations should be mentioned where applicable.

DEADLINE: Midnight Sunday 12 May 2019
