Commission Opportunity: Granby Winter Garden

Granby Winter Garden will be a new community-owned space in the heart of the Granby neighbourhood in Liverpool 8.  Two Victorian terraced houses will be transformed into a beautiful indoor garden and a unique resource for creative community action, cultural production and exchange.

Granby Four Streets Community Land Trust, in partnership with Bluecoat, seeks an artist to develop a horticultural work or series of works for Granby Winter Garden, in collaboration with the design team, Assemble, and local people.  Alongside devising planting, there is scope for the commissioned artist to propose further interventions into the Winter Garden space, or within the local neighbourhood, or to propose events, performances or workshops that accompany the making of the garden.

Applications from artists who actively engage with communities or public within their practice, and who can demonstrate an interest in planting or growing within their work are particularly welcomed. Artists working in any discipline, and at any stage in their career (except those currently studying) are invited to apply.

The project will take place between May and October 2017 to include research and development, delivery and evaluation.

An Artist’s Fee of £4,500 and a production budget of £4,000 is offered. Flexible studio and production facilities are available. 

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 3 May 2017, 12 noon

Interviews: Tuesday 16 May 2017

If you have any questions or queries concerning the project or the brief, contact Maria Brewster on granby@scottbrewster.co.uk.
