We want to create a portable structure which can adorn community buildings, library atriums and the entrance to school halls which will make familiar spaces new; a place for imaginations to thrive and artistic discoveries to be made.

The pop-up fascia is intended to transform young people’s usual, known environments, capturing attention and creating a buzz in the locality. It will also create a ‘brand’ of quality for families and young people, allowing them to feel comfortable to expand their artistic horizons, and to enter a new creative space. The structure should be quick to erect, adaptable for a range of spaces, durable and weather proof.

We welcome expressions of interest from visual artists as well as theatre designers and makers.

Deadline for expressions of interest: Monday 27th April 2015, 5pm.

The time frame for the commission is for the structure to be complete and usable by late July 2015.

There is a fee of £2,000, plus up to £6000 for materials and all building expenses.

To apply please email: harriet@fullhouse.org.uk with:

Your proposal.  Your CV and/or examples of previous relevant work.

Your proposal should include:

 An initial idea of what the structure might look like and how it would be constructed, including information about the materials that might be used.

 How your idea is relevant and appealing to children and family audiences and how it compliments Full House’s existing visual identity.

 A timeline for your realisation of the structure. (This can include working with other makers but please be specific about which elements of the process you would ‘out-source’.)

 We understand that all proposals will be indicative, and subject to change and development through the design process.

We are happy to receive proposals in a range of formats, e.g. video or audio files, or web-based applications, as long as the criteria above is covered in full.

Opinion: Which tribe are you?

As Grayson Perry has observed, “most people want to fit in with their tribe in some way or another, so they give off signals, whether it’s with their clothes, their behavior, their car, their whatever, and gain status . . . and the signals are an unconscious display of who you are and where you
