Engage invites galleries, museums and visual arts venues throughout the United Kingdom to submit proposals to host the 2020 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award (ARMA), Artist Commission, worth £15,000. The Award in 2020 focuses on mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. The application deadline is 10am on Thursday 6 June 2019.

The Award funds an artist (or artists) to conceive and deliver a project which engages children and young people. It is hoped the project will have an outcome such as an exhibition, performance, art commission or public sharing. A further £3,750 will be made available to the host organisation to cover their costs.

Applications are invited both from organisations with experience of working with artists on participatory projects or education and learning programmes, and those with little experience and for whom this would be a good opportunity to develop work in this area.
