Commission for Artists and Illustrators

Posted in Opportunities

New and emerging artists and illustrators are invited to submit work to a major heritage and regeneration project.

The Drawing Time brief offers artists a £500 fee and travel expenses and is part of East Street Arts’ Hidden Histories of New Briggate project. This heritage-led regeneration project is about revitalising the high street by researching and celebrating the stories of this special part of the city.

So, what’s the creative challenge? Artists can use illustration, drawing or other creative visual ideas to illustrate the Hidden Histories of New Briggate. It’s a chance to think deeply about what time travel could mean in this context – including ideas about the change in a place in a unique piece of art that considers time, the transformation of the city and what brings people together.

The drawing or artwork can be created digitally or in a more traditional, analogue way. The piece should work both on a small scale, like a postcard, and larger such as a big image being projected onto a wall.

The collection of artworks will be used as part of East Street Arts’ series of Take Away artworks. They will also be included in an exhibition which will be part of the organisation’s final celebratory events on New Briggate at the end of 2023.

Apply before 6th December 2022.
