Art Jameel, the independent arts organisation, has announced an open call for the second round of its Commissions programme, dedicated to Arts Writing and Research. This commission aims to support candidates from the arts and humanities in their pursuit of an innovative research area, and in the production of a substantial piece of writing or body of written work. The Arts Writing and Research Commission will include support towards the development of a published outcome, which can take the form of a booklet, magazine, pamphlet or other experimental format—either digital or print. The final outcome should be produced in a timely way, dependent on its format, and agreed upon in advance by the practitioner and commissioner. In addition, awardees are expected to instigate, and participate in, at least two public events at Jameel Arts Centre and Jameel Library.
The commission is open to art writers, curators, critics, art historians, and artists who have writing as their primary medium, more on eligibility in full brief.
