Sea_Image-1080x675

 

Call for expressions of interest from artists to partake in an unique project in the town of Caernarfon.

Following the success of the last two STAMP Castell exhibitions, Castell 03 returns this year with the thematic focus ‘To the Sea’ to coincide with Cymru Wales’ 2018 Year of the Sea. STAMP is part of the Arts Council of Wales Ideas, People, Places (IPP) arts-led regeneration Programme. Led by Gwynedd Council in partnership with Galeri, CADW and Communities First, the programme encompasses creative project work with a number of community groups, artists and organisations across the area.

Castell 03 is led by artist Manon Awst, who will coordinate between 8 and 10 site-specific projects leading up to a week of events and exhibitions between 15 – 24 June 2018.

They are interested in hearing from a wide range of artists, performers, makers, who will each have the opportunity to collaborate with an expert from a different field (incl. ecology, archaeology, history, literature, music, dance) to develop an artwork responding to a specific site within the Castle or the town based on the theme of ‘To the Sea’.

A budget of up to £2000 is available for each artwork, which includes the artist fee and all materials and technical equipment needed for the work.

Please send a CV, short statement outlining your interest in the project (max. one side A4) alongside examples of past work to manonawst@hotmail.co.uk. Please also send any queries about the application to this email address.

The closing date for receiving applications is 30 March 2018.
