Open Call Out - The Barn Dance Effect, Arts Partnership Surrey
Deadline: Mon 10 Dec 2018
Arts Partnership Surrey is looking to commission a participatory live arts experience to take to new or existing community events and festivals in Surrey. We are open to applications from artists, companies, musicians or collaborations working across any art form. The arts practitioners/ company could create a new artwork or develop an existing work with communities in Surrey.

Our key aims are to reach people who don’t normally take part in the arts and create an interactive and informal arts based ‘shared experience’. The activity/event should be open all age ranges. It’s important that the community can engage as little (they may just want to watch) or as much as they want (hands on and have a go). 

The successful arts practitioners/ company will carry out research and development in eight Surrey communities from February 2019 and will also use the ‘Forgotten Festivals’ research document. The final piece will be taken to up to eight events or festivals in 2019.

The project should be flexible in terms of its set up and nature as we anticipate that the festivals will be quite diverse, ranging from rural to urban, small scale to larger, indoor and outdoor.

The artist fee is for £18,000 in total. This should cover all the associated costs of development, and a tour of up to eight events in Surrey. We anticipate that each event or festival will provide the basic infrastructure, e.g. a marquee or village hall.

Please visit the Arts Partnership Surrey website for more details. 

Closing date for Expressions of interest: 10 December 2018
