Submerge, Small Installation Commission Call Out, ArtWaves Fest

Submerge, Small Installation Commission Call Out, ArtWaves Fest

ArtWaves Festival is bringing something new into the mix for 2018, Submerge!

This strand of the event is aimed at young, new and emerging artists looking to create and display artwork on a public platform.

ArtWaves are looking for installation type pieces that are static or interactive for members of the public to explore.

Submerge works by commissioning artists and working with them by way of technical support to deliver the piece at the event, exposure through marketing/association with the event and a portfolio of images from our event photographers. Essentially providing further exposure to boost their artistic profile.

This formatting has been adopted by many arts events across the country and proves to be highly successful, the event manager behind ArtWaves has personally created and managed a similar strand for a highly reputable arts event within the region and is passionate about the benefits such a strand can have to artists.

The experience allows artists to go through all the elements of concept to creation with the support of the event management, production teams and further contractors where required to ensure the piece is showcasing the best the artist has to offer.

ArtWaves are looking to commission 3 - 4 pieces for the 2018 event for a commission fee of £500 per artwork.

There is potential for commissioned artworks to be toured around galleries in curated exhibitions within the East Riding post showing at ArtWaves.

Deadline 19 Jan 2018
