Bluedot Festival Open Call for Commissions, with Light Night Leeds

Artistic field:

Eligibility:

Bluedot is inviting artists to apply to create one of two new commissions for the festival in 2019. The first commission will be awarded in partnership with Light Night Leeds with artists being expected to create a commission that explores light art and interactivity. Successful artist applicants of both commissioning levels will receive funding, publicity around their commission and support from the festival's production team and Creative Director to realise their idea. This opportunity is open to artists at any level of their career, and anybody residing in the UK is eligible to apply. We welcome proposals from artists who wish to develop an existing work, as well as proposals for new pieces of artwork.

Bluedot festival is committed to promoting equality and diversity across our programme and we actively encourage applications from artists of any ethnicity, gender and irrespective of any disability.

We are particularly interested in light art, digital artwork and installation work that:

  1. Has a sufficient scale and impact in the setting of bluedot festival at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre and Light Night Leeds.
  2. Is visible at night, as well as during the day as the artwork will be showcased in a predominantly after-hours area.
  3. Encourages interaction and exploration of the work.

 

Commission Levels

Bluedot festival will be awarding two new commissions in 2019: 

1 x Co-commission with Light Night Leeds / £10 000

1 x Support commission / £5000

 

Artists are invited to submit proposals until 5pm on 15th April 2019 via an online application form

For more information on how to apply, the commissioning process or any other questions about the commission please contact Amy Grundy.
