Maindee Unlimited are inviting applications from Sound Artists to produce a new art installation for the newly refurbished Maindee Library building, a volunteer-run community space in Maindee on the eastern side of Newport city centre.
The commissioned work will be situated and made in response to aspects of the social and cultural ecology of Maindee and will form part of the wider Finding Maindee: Mappa Maindee programme. The commission will culminate in a launch event at Maindee Library in November 2018. This will mark the end of the Ideas: People: Places project in Maindee but will also signal the start of a programme of arts & cultural events and activities that Maindee Unlimited plan to continue to host in the newly refurbished library, known as Maindee Library.
Budget: £13,000, inclusive of VAT
Commission is expected to run from August – November 2018
Deadline for Applications is Midnight 25 July 2018
Interviews are scheduled for 07 August 2018
