BHM Live: Launchpad is an initiative that seeks to support emerging artists from the African and African Caribbean Diaspora based in the UK. The initiative works across all art forms to mentor and share their ideas, and showcase their work and receive a £1000 commission.
Following the success of Launchpad in 2020, Serendipity are looking to commission up to four artists to create work that will feature as part of the 2021 edition of BlackInk, a magazine for Black History Month Leicester exploring art, heritage and cultural politics. Serendipity are looking for proposals suitable for publication in a print magazine and can be creatively adapted for online formats and potentially for a venue-based work.
Eligibility: Open to emerging artists from the African and African Caribbean Diaspora based in the UK
What you get out of it: Mentoring and £1000 commission
Deadline: 30 April 2021
