Organised by CVAN EM and taking place from May to July 2018, In Another Place will celebrate the wealth and breadth of the contemporary visual arts produced and presented by organisations in the East Midlands, with the aim to engage and develop audiences across the region. Participating organisations will be invited to commission artists to present artworks specifically produced for billboard posters. The billboards will reflect each organisation’s particular programme in a region-wide presentation between May and July 2018.
All billboards will be presented simultaneously in locations around the region other than where the commissioning organisations themselves are based. Alongside the billboards additional printed and digital materials will be produced in order to expand the reach and visibility of the project. In Another Place will be promoted through a joint marketing, branding and communications campaign.
This region-wide project aims to present a vibrant and accessible display, with which to entice visitors into the region’s venues.
Organisations taking part in In Another Place will have the opportunity to be part of a £40k project, to promote their activity to 100s of 1000s of people every week for 6 weeks, to commission new artwork, to be part of a suite of region-wide promotional and engagement activities. They will be selected through a process of open submission and panel selection. Selection will be based on the quality of the applicant’s proposed project, its ability to engage audiences and its commitment to participate in and advocate for the project overall.
Applicants must be based in the East Midlands.
Deadline: Friday 28 April 2017.
