Environmental Artists

We have recently entered into a partnership with a local community initiative in the Glodwick area of Oldham who are looking to use art, creativity, craft and skills to renovate a local mosque and education space and the green space around it. As such, we are now looking for artists with a range of practice to get involved in this piece of work. We need visual artists happy with working outdoors, artists able to build structures, textile artists, designers, photographers and anyone with a bright idea to help transform this space. 

Deadline: 5pm 27th October (but expressions will be accepted on a rolling basis).
