Warp Open Calls
Here are the first of our open call opportunities that we’ll be posting over the coming months.
We are working to make our opportunities accessible and easy to apply to and to make the process as user-friendly as we can. We welcome and encourage applicants facing barriers to applying and hope that we can accommodate as wide a range of applicants as possible. Access support is available for all applicants, including alternative formats and tailored support to enable you to undertake the commission.
We welcome applications from people irrespective of disability, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, family responsibility, age, race, ethnic origin, nationality (subject to issue of work permit where required), trade union membership and activity, political or religious beliefs.
We are committed to supporting more applications and commissions from artists whose background and/or identity is under-represented in the programme, in our resources and our staff and board of g39. This includes, but is not limited to, artists from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds, artists from lower socio-economic backgrounds, d/Deaf artists, neurodiverse artists, disabled artists or with long-term health conditions and artists with LGBTQIA+ identities.
g39 is pleased to be able to offer support to Wales based or Welsh artists to create new work.
We want this commission to reach as wide an audience as possible. We encourage a community focussed, participatory or inclusive approach, an awareness of context and of the current situation. We welcome all forms of work that can be publicly presented or shared safely. This could be in an online setting (eg audio, video, text, games, app design, performance, socially-engaged practice, web or desktop interventions and workshops), or in an offline / public realm setting (egsite-specific work, billboards/ paste ups, managed postal projects or distributed print works or texts).
At least one of these commissions will be offered to an artist from a Black, Asian or ethnically diverse background. We have adopted a policy of Positive Action to ensure g39’s opportunities benefit people who may have been excluded or discriminated against or who otherwise face the consequences of past or present discrimination or disadvantage.
Eligibility: Wales based/ Welsh artist, any career stage
Deadline for application: 07/08/2020
