LGBTQIA+ artist wanted to produce new digital artwork for Dreamy Place & Bright Winter Nights

Bright Winter Nights at Bolsover Castle, Derbyshire, 2023, Junction Arts

Junction Arts and videoclub are looking for an artist to create new digital artwork with the LGBTQIA+ community in and around Chesterfield in NE Derbyshire. To be projected onto Bolsover Castle on the 29th November as part of Dreamy Place at Bright Winter Nights. 

The theme of the project is community voice – the piece needs to be a creative interpretation of our (often unheard) communities.

The artist will work with participants over four workshops to explore ideas, make new work, and incorporate participants’ creations into one or more designs, which could be projection mapped or projected directly onto the castle. 

Workshops will take place in September and October, with time to refine artwork in November prior to the event on 29th November. 

Fee: £4,000 to deliver 4 workshops, produce the final artwork for projection, and support the installation of the artwork. 

Equipment and production: There is a separate budget for production for the projection/installation and for workshop materials. To be discussed on appointment. 

Access support: We have an access support budget for the appointed artist if required. 

Due to the location, we are expecting the artist to be based in the East Midlands / local area, due to workshops and installation being located in this area. Though we are open to discussion.

Deadline for submissions: 31 July 2024 at 6pm.
