Camden Creates_ Artist / Designer Temporary Public Art Commission
Call for expressions of interest
Budget for main piece:

Camden Creates_ is a collaborative festival of creativity for and by the businesses of Camden Town. It is taking place in venues across the area, from KOKO to the independent hairdressers on the corner. It celebrates Camden’s historical association with creativity and showcases the trail-blazing work of the fashion, art, design and media companies who are beavering away in the offices behind the High Street. Activity will take the form of talks, interviews and Q&A’s from all levels of industry from SMEs to CEOs. Businesses have the opportunity to present recent or special work by inviting people to their offices and meeting rooms. Camden Creates_ will host ‘labs’ – sessions for young people and businesses to get advice from the big guns. Camden Creates_ are also looking at locations for an MTV DISTRICT fashion pop-up with local brands big and small and considering a digital photo exhibition down Camden High Street. Satellite activity will include local bands nights, a branded routemaster bus to take people around the venues, public performances and short viral video teasers with eminent Camdenites.

As part of the festival Camden Creates_ are inviting artists and designers to put forward proposals for a temporary sculptural (3d) work in the public realm in Camden Town.

Call for expression of interest deadline: 13th January 2014, 12 noon
