Ancient Connections invite Expressions of Interest from artists, musicians and creatives for:
- Music and sound commissions (total budget available €15,000)
- Literature and visual arts commissions (total budget available €15,000)
All commissions will explore the theme of Holy Wells in North Pembrokeshire and North Wexford. The budgets will be allocated evenly between Pembrokeshire and Wexford. It is likely that between 4-6 commissions will be awarded, of varying values between €2000 and €10,000, depending on the nature of the project and the extent to which it encompasses cross-border creatives. Proposals are invited equally for small-scale projects as well as larger more ambitious proposals.
The Ancient Connections team want to hear about any projects you are currently working on, or want to develop that relate to the theme of Holy Wells through the medium of sound and/or music. OR literature and visual arts. Detailed proposals are not required at this stage, just an outline of the vision for a project and an approximate budget. This will give us an opportunity to review who is interested, where they are from, what they do, and how they might creatively work with or complement similar or related projects across the border. As much as possible we want to encourage cross-border collaboration between artists working in similar approaches and/or mediums. From the findings of the open call, a small number of applicants will be invited to materialise their idea with an allocated budget.
There are two briefs, one for music and sound and another for literature and visual arts – please ensure that you download the correct brief and application form.
