Open Call: Art Assembly, City as Art School – Manchester 2022

Updated: 04 November 2021

The collective behind Art Assembly 2022 (Castlefield Gallery, HOME, Manchester Art Gallery, the Whitworth, and The Manchester College at Shena Simon Campus, working in partnership with the Art Fund) are seeking to recruit eight Greater Manchester experienced artists/artist collectives to create co-commissions in collaboration with educational groups in which they will be embedded for Art Assembly, a one-day festival in Manchester city centre on 18 June 2022.

These co-commissions will sit at the heart of the programme, acting like a golden thread running through the one-day event, provoking discussion, thinking, and sparking ideas that might empower all to be able to engage in the Art Assembly podcast debate.

Eligibility: Open to contemporary visual artists living and/or working in Greater Manchester.

What you get: Each of the eight artists/artist collectives will receive a fee of £2,500. A production budget will also be available for each co-commission.

Deadline 30 November 2021
