Artists Commission Opportunities – Illumination #2 and Curated Trail #2 – deadline 22 April 2011

As a central part of the Transform programme at Snibston Discovery Park we are undertaking two new commissions for 2011. Working within the key thematic area of ‘illuminate, animate, and integrate’ artists are invited to propose new works for either the ‘Illumination #2’ or the ‘Curated Trail #2’ options.

Are you interested in using the collections of the museum as a starting point for a major work – temporary or permanent to be undertaken between June and November 2011? Can you bring your expertise and ideas to add to the rich mix of environments here and use this to create work that excites our audiences? Are you still curious, and will you pass on that curiosity to young and old? Will you excite and enliven this place through your engagement with a quality process? Then if so, we are interested in hearing more from you and in telling you more about our work here.

Full commission briefs, background information and application processes are available by email to Nathan Rollings at and using the subject line ‘Commission 2011’. The deadline for completed applications is 12pm, 22 April. A briefing day for artists will be held on 8 April and this also needs to be booked via Nathan.
