Open call for artists’ proposals.
Bedford Music In Detention delivered by Bedford Creative Arts, in partnership with The Higgins, Bedford are inviting applications from socially engaged artists, working across art forms to undertake a residency at The Higgins, Bedford. The work produced during the residency will be showcased at The Higgins at the end of the residency period in early October 2018.
The aim of the residency is to support a socially engaged artist whose practice is centered around issues of migration, detainees, unheard voices and identity. The involvement of participants in the process of making the work and/ or the outcome of the final project should be integral to the work produced.
Artists are invited to respond to the theme of ‘Journeys’, with a particular focus on migration and unheard voices. The successful recipient will draw inspiration for the work arising from the residency from both BedMID’s archive of songs made with detainees at Yarl’s Wood IRC and The Higgins Bedford’s collections.
Budget £3,000 including artist fee, expenses, materials and installation costs for the showcase.
