Junction Arts and six other arts organisations from the East Midlands are embarking on an ambitious, regional project called Our Place.
Our Place will commission 7 artist residencies in 7 communities across the region to co-create new work that is representative of place. This new work will be filmed by a commissioned filmmaker in a showcase feature of between 3-10 mins duration per community/residency and edited together for a final web broadcast of between 45-60 minutes long. The broadcast will be curated to showcase a diversity of artforms, content and communities that make up our diverse East Midlands, featuring each of the 7 individual pieces linked together by the theme ‘this is our place’. The new work will be premiered on Thursday 26th August as well as through a series of celebration events over summer 2021.
We are looking for an exceptional and versatile artist/s to work with Junction Arts and Derbyshire LGBTQ+ during a summer residency (June-July 2021) in Chesterfield, Derbyshire to create new work that responds to people and place.
We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and encourage applications from LGBTQ+ artists. Please note that all artists will require a DBS background check and to adhere to Junction Arts’ safeguarding policies and procedures.
£3,000 Artist fee inclusive of materials, VAT and travel.
Please submit the following documents by email to: email@example.com
The deadline for applications is 10am Tuesday 11th May 2021.
