Bedford Creative Arts is seeking proposals from artists or artists groups for our first major commission of 2013. Our artistic theme for 2013 is OURS – what we have in common and what makes something our own?

The Central Bedfordshire town of Dunstable and its surrounding area has been chosen as the location for this commission. As well as the artistic themes identified in the artists brief, proposals should respond to the specific identity of this location and the people who live, work and visit there.

We expect participative events and activities for local communities and identified target groups to begin in April 2013. These activities should be integral to the commission and lead to sustained collaborative relationships with participants throughout summer 2013.

This shared artistic process will result in the creation of a new artwork to be revealed in a high profile public presentation in September 2013.

A commission fee of £10,000 is available for the chosen artist or artists group. Additional budgets for travel expenses, materials, resources and the delivery of specific events and activities will be negotiated before the artist is contracted in early 2013.

Deadline for submissions: Friday 30th November 2012, 12 noon GMT

For further information, a full artist’s brief and details of how to apply, download as pdf or Word document.

Candidates must read the full brief before making an application. We expect to discuss proposals with shortlisted artists in early December, and to have selected the successful candidate by the end of the year.
