Projections on Bolsover Castle for Bright Winter Nights 2023, Junction Arts

Call out for LGBTQIA+ participants in and around Chesterfield, to work with a LGBTQIA+ artist to create new artworks to be projected onto Bolsover Castle. 

Participants will work with an artist to make digital artworks, including video, digital collages, and images, which will be projected onto Bolsover Castle on 29th November. As part of Dreamy Place at Bright Winter Nights. Curated and produced by Junction Arts and videoclub.

No creative experience is needed to take part. Just an enthusiasm for being creative. 

There will be 4 free workshop sessions over September and October, leading to an artwork being produced by the artist (to be confirmed) in November. We’d like to encourage participants to sign up for more than one workshop, so you can develop your artwork. But you are also free to sign up for just one or two sessions. Workshops will be held in a location in central Chesterfield with adequate links to public transport.

If you would like to participate, email: by 31/07/24. We will follow up with dates, times and location of workshops. Participants need to be 16+ to sign up.
