Artist Brief: Kirklees response to COVID-19

Artist Brief: Kirklees response to COVID-19

Kirklees Council would like to appoint an artist to develop work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to explore the impact and the Kirklees response to this.

The final work will be proudly displayed with the potential to become part of the Kirklees Museum and Galleries collections as a document to this significant moment in the district’s history.

Kirklees Museums and Galleries will collect, preserve and celebrate the history and culture of Kirklees and the diverse people who live and work here. They will encourage pride in the local community and help people to understand the wider world and their place in it.

The work needs to take into consideration the Kirklees Collections Development Policy, which states that collections can be divided into three broad areas: human history, natural history and media archives. Each area contains highly important collections. Further to this, the work needs to take into consideration key cultural priorities for the district of textiles and music, as expanded upon in the WOVEN in Kirklees textile festival and the Year of Music 2023 planning and development.

This opportunity is open to artists and creative practitioners with the relevant experience either living or working in a Kirklees postcode, or with a deep knowledge, understanding and/or connection with the district.

Deadline for proposals: Wednesday 30th September 5pm
