Artist Opportunity

Out There Festival Decor proposals

Out There Festival Décor Project Proposals

SeaChange are seeking artists and makers to work with us on a funding application for a décor making project for the 2017 Out There Festival.  We would like to hear from any artist, makers or crafts person who would like to be involved with this exciting new project.

We are looking to build on the festival décor used in previous years and some ideas for theme and style of the type of items we are looking for can be found below.  We’d like you to make proposals for projects by 31 March 2017.

Outline:

It’s essential that the décor created is long-lasting, durable, transportable and suitable for outdoor use

We would ideally be looking for a range of free standing, high impact installations that will animate the festival site

Pieces will ideally be easy to install and pack away, but strong and stable once installed.

Artists will also be asked to consider the materials from which décor is created, not only to ensure the work’s durability but also ensure the weight of the item is as minimal as possible to aid the ease of installation and storage.

Proposals should also consider material and production costs.

We would like to know what your skill set is, the type of décor you are proposing for the project and your availability between April – September 2017.

The project would include professional development sessions for artist to take part in.  We would then ask you to utilise these skills to lead fabrication workshops, design and make décor for the festival site.

Ideas for what we’re looking for:

  • High Impact
  • Seasonal theme(s)
  • Life sized or over-sized figures
  • Large tropical birds (flamingos!)
  • Willow shapes (leaves, conkers, seed pods)
  • Creative outdoor lighting
  • Re-using large waste products (ie tyres)
  • Recycled / upcycled materials
  • Directional signage (for around the festival site)
  • Long lengths or bunting / flags / tassels

Please fill in the attached proposal form and return to siobhan@seachangearts.org.uk If you have any questions, please contact Siobhan on 01493 745458
