Deadline Monday 09 April 2018
The Riverdown Park Mentorship Programme is a site-specific project based in Salisbury, Wiltshire. The programme is an open call for an early career visual artist wishing to develop their practice to include working in the public realm, or for a recent arts graduate (including those graduating in 2018), who ideally intends to work and develop their practice locally to Wiltshire. The chosen artist will be required to work with the Riverdown Park residential development lead artist Kerry Lemon – www.kerrylemon.co.uk, in partnership with the development’s Public Art Steering Group.
Through the exploration of site-specific contemporary and historic material, the mentee shall work with the lead artist on a variety of tasks associated with designing and producing art in the public realm. In addition, we encourage the mentee to produce their own work either permanent or temporary, for example an exhibition, publication, sound and / or digital interaction.
There is a fee of £2,400 available to the mentee to develop a permanent, temporary or experiential work as part of the Riverdown Park art in the public realm, in consultation with the lead artist. This is broken down as follows:
Artist Fee (including project proposal and travel expenses) - £1,000
On site project production cost - £1,400
For an application form please email: firstname.lastname@example.org, using the following subject: Re: Riverdown Park Public Art Mentee Commission.
The deadline for applications is Monday April 9, 2018. The successful mentee will be notified by Wednesday 18 April 2018. The duration of the project is from May 2018 to November 2018.
