***The Previously advertised deadline for proposals has been EXTENDED until 18 April***
Bloomsbury Festival is seeking to commission an early career artist/maker to design and make/build a unique and enchanting ‘pop-out’ map or model of the Bloomsbury area as part of its Festival in a Box.
Festival in a Box is a project that offers people who can’t get out to the Festival an opportunity to participate in an enjoyable cultural event. At present we are working predominantly with adults living with dementia.
We want to incorporate a specially designed artwork into the ‘box’ itself so that it becomes a talking point and a stimulus for memories and discussions within the sessions.
EXTENDED Deadline for submissions: 5pm on 18 April 2016
21 – 28 April: The selected artist will work closely with the Festival in a Box team, and the Bloomsbury Festival Director to further develop the design concept
28 April – 12 May: Artist to build/make the final artwork to the agreed design and specifications
