We're commissioning a new artwork for King's Lynn, Norfolk - Collusion

We’re commissioning a new artwork for King’s Lynn, Norfolk09 November 2019

APPLY NOW // Deadline: 12 noon on 02 December. Open to UK artists & companies of all disciplines.

Collusion invites artists from across the UK to apply for a commission to create a new contemporary art work (any artform) for King’s Lynn that includes large-scale outdoor projection, gamified, interactive elements, and launch activity, and engages local communities on the theme of climate change. The project will take place in May 2020 as part of Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

King’s Lynn is home to a unique, permanently sited large-scale projection system focused on historical sites across the town centre. The location for this commission will be the Custom House, an iconic and historic site on the waterfront.

We are seeking proposals for works that are originated creatively, to be developed during a short period of R&D before being manifested as a full scale artwork. The commission is open to UK artists across all disciplines, as well as arts organisations, collectives and creatives assembled around cross-disciplinary making, including those working across art and tech.

Collusion work as creative producers with artists and partners to deliver innovative artworks that explore emerging technologies. As such we don’t expect artists to have all of the technical skills to build the project, but applicants must have a track record of working as an artist and the experience and ability to manage and sustain a project from R&D to exhibition.

The funding partners for the commission are Norfolk & Norwich Festival, the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, Arts Council England, Discover King’s Lynn, and Norfolk County Council.
