Application deadline: 20 November
The Live Art Development Agency (LADA) is inviting proposals from artists for a new project that will respond to the physical, cultural and social context of LADA’s new base in The Garrett Centre, Mansford Street, East London.
The commission award is £2,500 (inclusive of fees, taxes, travel/accommodation, and production expenses).
To support their relocation to a new neighbourhood, LADA are inviting proposals from artists for a project that will explore and test ideas for new ways of working within/around our new premises, and new ways of engaging with local publics and partners.
The commissioned project can take any form. It might be a series of site specific performances/actions/interventions in, or within the vicinity of, our new space; it might be a street fair; it might be a participatory project with local individuals or groups; it might be a collaboration with a neighbourhood organisation; it might be a series of guest lectures or screenings; it might be a new, shareable resource or publication; it might be a lunch or supper or book club.
While we are interested in publications, we do encourage ideas that will contribute to the programme’s engagement objectives and not creating something that will simply sit on a shelf!
Likewise, while LADA welcome new iterations of existing projects, they strongly encourage applicants to demonstrate a clear link to our their space, its local area, and/or local organisations and residents.
The commissioned work should be realised by July 2018 at the latest.
Applicants can be resident anywhere in the UK, but must have been based in the UK for a minimum of five years, and have been practicing within the arts for a minimum of five years.
