Tate Liverpool is fully committed to challenging the ways in which art is presented to the public and how this can evolve through working in social contexts. To this end Tate Liverpool opens the call for collaborative socially engaged artist/s born in or resident in the UK, Ireland, Spain, Finland, Hungary or Germany, (partner countries within the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme). The budget for this commission is 40,000 GBP (approximately 50,000 EUR) and closing date for applications is 30 August 2016 at midnight. The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme funded by Creative Europe. 

The brief is to research and deliver a new commission in Spring, 2017. The commission process will include a research period with the opportunity to develop a new work at Tate Liverpool, in collaboration with local communities and a network of established partners in the North of England and beyond.

It is envisaged that artists will work with local communities outside the institution as well as use the top floor gallery space at Tate Liverpool throughout April 2017.

Artists should have experience of working in the field of collaborative socially engaged practice, understand the ethical issues involved, be relevant to local conditions and engage a broad audience.

Individual artists or artist collectives are invited to submit draft proposals by 30 August 2016.

This Commission is part of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme, find more information at www.create-ireland.ie.
