FutureEverything is delighted to announce a £10,000 funding pot to commission up to 6 established and emerging artists, with Kendal Calling in partnership with Eden Arts, supported by Arts Council England. The commissioned artists will create installations at Kendal Calling 2014 under the theme ‘Beyond Infinity’.
‘Beyond Infinity’ has been chosen to reflect Kendal Calling’s 2014 festival theme ‘Kendal Calling goes Beyond the Stars’. The newly introduced arts trail will showcase the work of six independent visual artists, and we are seeking submissions from established and emerging artists that include high quality, engaging visual artworks with emphasis on sculpture, light projections and installations. Artists are encouraged to create pieces incorporating an element of digital media interaction to engage the audience at the event. One major commission of £5000 is available for a lead piece, along with five additional commissions of £1000.
We are particularly interested in works that:
- Explore the concept of space through the theme ‘Beyond Infinity’
- Have accessible visual appeal, making a high impact on the festival audience
- Feature large-scale sculptural pieces, making use of the expansive outdoor environment
- Invite and promotes play and interactivity
- Encourages the audience to interact with the art via social media platforms
Deadline for submissions: 26 June 2014
