Bowland Revealed Commissions

Deadline: June 12, 2014, 9:00 am

Bowland Revealed is a partnership project between Lancashire County Council Arts Development, Ribble Valley Borough Council and the Forest of Bowland AONB. The project is offering a series of commissions for both major and emerging artists on the theme of Landmark, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the designation of the Forest of Bowland as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There will be two large scale commissions from major artists and 2 smaller commissions from emerging artists which will be sited and on public view for a period of 6 weeks in September/October 2014. It is envisaged that this will be an ambitious, site-specific artwork which will excite, challenge and delight audiences but have a deep awareness, understanding and respect for the important landscape in which it will be sited.

This project has been made possible thanks to £62,000 funding from Arts Council England through their Grants for the Arts programme and additional funding by the partner organisations.

In addition to the commissioning opportunities there is a project management role available. This role is to support and promote the successful delivery of the 4 commissions within the Forest of Bowland AONB and to ensure that the artworks can be accessed safely by the public.
