Social Makers – Call for Artist Interventions and Installations

As part of the symposium programme we are hoping to share the work of those working with social practices engaged with communities in Plymouth and the South West. Socially engaged practice can include any art form which involves people and communities in debate, collaboration or social interaction. This can often be organised as the result of an outreach or education program, but many independent artists also use it within their work.

We invite proposals from artists from Plymouth and the South West region whose work is strongly engaged in community, to display work, an installation, or documentation of practice which may include video, photographs, text or performance in one of three converted jail cells in the Devonport Guildhall building.

We welcome proposals from artists at all stages in their careers.

Deadline for applications: Applications now closed

Symposium dates: 7th and 8th of June 2018 (install on 6th June)

Budget for each artist: £250 per artist (including £100 on symposium ticket)
