Voices of the Sea: Call for Expressions of Interest

Deadline: July 11, 2011

Voices of the Sea is a unique commissioning opportunity created by a partnership of Brighton & Hove based arts organisations: FabricaBlast TheoryBrighton Festival, Lighthouse, Photoworks and the University of Brighton and Musee de Beaux Arts Calais. 

We will commission two artists, each with a strong track record, to create two major new works, responding to the coastal context and maritime heritage of South East England.

The commissions are inspired by The Boat Project by Lone Twin, http://www.theboatproject.com, begining its maiden voyage in 2012 and visiting Brighton as part of Brighton Festival. The commissions are part of RELAY, a programme by Turning Point South East (a network of visual arts organizations). Like The Boat ProjectRELAY is connected to the Cultural Olympiad 2012.

Voices of the Sea comprises an exhibition, a site-specific work which links the exhibition to the dock where The Boat Project is moored, and an education programme.  It will be a key part of Brighton Festival 2012, England’s largest arts festival.

We are now seeking expressions of interest from prominent artists for these two commissions before 11 July 2011. You can download the full briefing document below.

Closing date: 11 July 2011.
