The deadline for applications has passed but you can read the brief and Q&A here
We're looking for artists, designers, software developers and other creative industries professionals from the Lincoln Road Millfield and wider Peterborough area to take part in our R&D Challenge, Playfinding Peterborough,
Taking part includes great professional development opportunities including learning new skills, building new networks, and gaining knowledge from people working in other creative fields.
Collusion is launching our first R&D challenge in Peterborough. We are looking for people to take part who’re up for learning some new skills and applying them as part of a group challenge.
Collusion invites you to apply to join the team that will design and build an innovative, prototype outside structure (think 21st century community gathering space/ bandstand/monument/wayfinder) which seeks to engage people with the area/wider city and its data through creative use of interactive technology. Each team member will receive a £500 fee.
There’s a proven lack of open, green spaces in this area of Peterborough and air quality concerns. The project will explore solutions to these environmental concerns and ways to support place-finding in the area through two interconnected aspects: i) the construction of an outdoor structure in the Lincoln Road Millfield area; ii) the development of a series of performic events involving artists and local people, utilising the outdoor structure as a curated place, linking into diversity and community cohesion.. The final outcome will be delivered in Spring 2018 as part of a key public moment - the first planned temporary closure of Lincoln Road.
Our fantastic partners are Arts Council England, Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP, Opportunity Peterborough, and Peterborough City Council with support from Allia Future Business Centre.
