A Convenience Gallery exhibition about Parks in a park.
Convenience is hitting the road again and this time we are on a trip over to Birkenhead Park in July, for their 175th Birthday, and bringing some programming along for the ride. Birkenhead Park is a place of historical and International significance as the first municipal park in the world and we’re really excited to bring a project and artists to their visitor centre space.
This will be a collective exhibition about all things parks. Along with a few surprise bits of programming too across our takeover.
To curate this exhibition we’re opening a call for artists in the north west. For every new space we go to, we like to begin with an open call to invite new artists, ideas and people, to shape our programming and make it reflective and responsive of our NW community.
🌳 Brief and Guidance:
The brief is simple: Art about Parks. What is your experience of parks? Do you have a favourite? Think about memories and moments, a feeling, a funny story, nostalgia of youth, the wildlife, habitats, design, ponds, trees, activities, groups, clubs, history, or something else that relates to parks personally for you, we’d love for you to submit. We want this to be a fun and engaging exhibition for the local community. We’re looking to feature 10 - 20 artworks for this opportunity depending on scale.
This is open to all North West creatives, we like to keep our open calls simple and short. Be conversational and let us know about yourself and your ideas.
