Cradle to Career Celebration Event

Right to Succeed, in collaboration with Open Culture, invites artistic proposals to celebrate the end of their three-year Cradle to Career project at an event to be held on Saturday 15th July 2023 in Birkenhead Park, Liverpool City Region.  

What is Cradle to Career?

Cradle to Career is a place-based programme, led by Right to Succeed and a number of partners, that puts the people of North Birkenhead at the heart of education, services and local decision making. Their vision is that every child in North Birkenhead thrives, from Cradle to Career.

Open Call Paid Artists Commissions

This new special commission is for:

  • Emerging or established artists and/or arts organisation living or working in the UK.
     
  • Artists who can help celebrate and represent the work done by Cradle to Career and partners as part of their long-term project with the communities in the North End of Birkenhead, Liverpool City Region.
     
  • Artist/s who understands the idea of collective working, its challenges and benefits and can bring an exciting creative idea on how to represent this through art and culture.
     
  • Artists who can submit a high-quality proposal that explores the theme of Collectivity that would be interesting for audiences who are less engaged with the arts. 

Proposals

Proposals in any artform are welcome including visual arts, sculpture, technology, moving image, poetry, spoken word, gaming, performance, installation, light art, etc or any combination of these.

Right to Succeed are especially keen to hear from artists with diverse backgrounds or with voices less often heard.

As a local, place-based project, we welcome applications from artists and/or arts organisations who are familiar with the geographical area in Birkenhead and understand the cultural context, but it’s not essential

Your proposed activity / installation needs to take place physically and be engaging and interactive for all ages and needs to take place outdoors. And is supported by a small number of engaging workshop sessions that can take place indoors or outdoors in the lead up to the event.

Theme: Collectivity

Collectivity is greater than the sum of its individual parts. Together, we can do things that might seem insurmountable individually. System change only happens when we unite to reach for a shared vision.

We all recognise just how valuable human connection and relationships are, particularly in a post-covid world. Ultimately, Right to Succeed and partners want their special celebration event in Birkenhead Park to celebrate the power of Collectivity.

Budget

The value of the commission is between £5,000 - £10,000, depending on the scale and complexity of your proposed work.

Right to Succeed are looking for 1 or possibly 2 commissions. The overall total budget is £10,000 - if you wish to put in a shared proposal, they will welcome that too.

Commission selection

Commissions selection is supported by a selection panel and will be based on the quality of your idea, connection to and understanding of the theme, your ability to deliver the work to a high artistic standard and within the timescales and budget.

Right to Succeed can accept proposals in any format you wish. If you would like to submit a proposal in another format other than as a word document or pdf, please get in touch.
