Corridor8 is supporting four new writing commissions. These commissions are for individuals who have faced cultural, social, physical or economic barriers to pursuing a career in the arts and/or arts writing.
Writers will receive a £200 fee and editorial support to produce a 1,000-1,500 word text that responds critically and/or creatively to contemporary art practice in the North of England, particularly following the emergence of Covid-19 and the ongoing measures to limit its spread. Writing must orbit a Northern artist, city or region(s) and can be reflective, exploratory, contextual or interview-based.
Deadline 25 May 2020
