Arts in Regeneration: call for artists

Birmingham City Council, Strategic Housing Division are looking for community artists to deliver projects in the Lozells and Aston areas of North West Birmingham.

Each of the chosen artists will be asked to work with up to 5 local primary schools and one Secondary School to develop temporary works of art reflecting social, economic and environmental changes taking place in Lozells, Newtown, or Aston. The programme celebrates the culture and pride of local community, its heritage and its future.

The programme is funded by Urban Living with a view to expanding work carried out with schools in other areas of N.W. Birmingham namely Ladywood and Hockley/Spring Hill.

BCC Housing Department is currently looking for community artists to deliver a series of temporary art works, in any discipline, to be delivered between January 2009 and March 2009.

Selected artists will be required to attend a programmed period of research and development as part of the commission for two days during the week commencing 19th January 2009 (see Additional Information section for details) in preparation for the delivery of the project with the schools through the remainder of January, February, and early March to be completed and invoiced by Monday 16th March 2009.

The projects will be selected through an open competition and application is through submission only - there will be no interviews.

In the week beginning 5th January 2009 a panel comprising representatives of the funders and BCC Housing Department will select the successful artists from the submissions received. If further information is needed at this stage we will contact shortlisted candidates by phone.
