Deadline for applications: 18 July

CRATE is inviting proposals from artists and curators to research, test and create a new curatorial project using Crate’s project space for a four week period between 17th October and 14th November. All proposals must have a strong public outcome and include a Crate Conversations session.

A fee of £1000 will be awarded to the chosen applicant, there will be a production budget of £1,450, travel and accommodation will be funded up to £900. Crate will provide promotional and technical support.

Crate Project Space in Margate, an artist-led organisation supporting fine artists’ research and practice. Crate aims to embed research culture in arts practice creating activities that support critical discourse, artist development, building capacity, sustaining networks and strengthening local community relationships.

Please note: Solo exhibition by the applicant will not be considered as they would like to see connections being made with other artists; the exhibition can include work made by the applicant. CRATE would like to see a strong research question or thematic idea. There must be a public outcome, ideally an exhibition with accompanying events. Applications by collectives will be considered but the Artist’s fee is fixed and would have to be split. You must be present to install and deinstall the exhibition as well as run any events.
