bait Artist Commissions

Museums Northumberland are offering two artist commissions that are part of the Creative People and Places programme, initiated and funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery. Creative People and Places is about more people taking the lead in choosing, creating and taking part in art experiences in the places where they live.

We are excited to invite expressions of interest from artists, arts collectives and creative companies to two creative commissions that explore the creative themes of ‘heritage and community’ and ‘care of the environment through art, creativity and cultural activity’.

We are seeking artistically ambitious, collaborative approaches that engage people in South East Northumberland at every stage of the project delivery, including decision makers, participants and audiences.

We are interested in dynamic, online and in person approaches to bringing people together in creative activity and value the links between the themes of the creative briefs and our wellbeing. We welcome applications that reflect the diversity of our decision making group, communities and wider society.

Please visit our wesbite to download the two creative commissions, plus some background and additional information that will help you in your application.
