Sky Works Installation: Commission opportunity with £2K artist fee

Updated: 08 May 2024

The Artist will design a canopy installation that meets the physical parameters of the installation space, with particular attention to lightweight, weather-resistant materials and bright, colourful, bold visual impact. It will be sympathetic to local aesthetics, values, and cultures. The artworks will be created by the Artist and include crafted elements that can be made with our team of Community Makers who meet on Wednesdays. We are looking for an Artist who has participatory art experience and enjoys working with learning and physically disabled adults.

Eligibility: We welcome proposals from artists who work in all types of materials. Materials used will need to be suitable for an overhead installation. We seek applications from artists who can evidence previous relevant works or have an established practice that relates to this commission. This opportunity is open to undergraduate students. Applicants must be over 18. You must demonstrate an existing arts practice in a discipline recognised by Arts Council England. You do not have to be a resident in Stoke on Trent but you must be able to travel to Longton for a minimum of 4 days work; travel costs will not be covered.

What you get: £2,000 artist fee (approx £200 a day) to include participatory workshops, planning, and making time. Mentor support will be provided to co-create the installation design.
