Enjoy Public Art Gallery is now calling for proposals for our 2018 programme. Applications close Sunday 20th August 2017. As an independent art space dedicated to experimental and non-commercial work, we are seeking a diversity of project proposals that are rigorous and explorative in nature. We welcome submissions for:
- Solo or group exhibitions from artists
- Curatorial projects
- Offsite projects and/or experimental exhibition formats
All proposals should be for new work that has not been presented elsewhere. Projects will be selected based on their quality and relevance to the communities Enjoy serves, as well as how they fit within the overall balance of the gallery’s programming. You can read more about Enjoy’s mission and vision here.
Please read the following information carefully before completing the application form, which includes further details on what to include and how to submit your proposal. (Download the form here.)
The closing date for applications is Sunday 20th August. You will receive an email confirming that your proposal has been received within 2 working days of sending it, and you will be notified of the outcome of your submission by 31 October 2017.
Information for applicants
Successful proposals will be scheduled between January and November 2018. If selected, practitioners will work closely with Enjoy Staff and receive feedback and logistical support towards their project. All artists/curators are required to sign an agreement and set realistic goals and timelines for their project in conversation with Enjoy’s Curator.
Enjoy provides modest artist or curator fees, rent-free attended gallery space, assistance with marketing and promotion and a limited selection of tools and equipment. Please note that you will need to cover the costs of production and any additional equipment, freight, travel and accommodation.
