Expression of interest for Working Class Creative Database X Convenience Gallery: This opportunity is currently not accepting responses as we process the ones we have. If you have any questions please email: email@example.com
Convenience is currently working with the Working class creatives database for their 2023 programme. We are working alongside the WCCD team to shape funding, selection, curation, support and locations for the Merseyside section of a UK wide programme of events and exhibitions focused on supporting and championing working class creatives.
More details From WCCD:
“For our (WCCD) 2023 Programme, The Working-Class Creatives Database are hosting a series of Exhibitions, Residencies, Workshops and Talks in Low Engagement areas across the UK including: Hull, Woolwich, Wakefield, Gloucester, Southampton, Portsmouth, Luton, Preston, Middlesborough and Merseyside.
We will work with local creatives and galleries/project spaces to create exhibitions, host workshops and discussions for the public which centre the theme of class within the arts. We are currently in the process of selecting Creatives to show work. We are also interested in commissioning a working-class writer to work on the vinyl and the press release for the show focusing on new ways of presenting work to the public. All artists will be paid a fee.
The number of Artists in the show would depend on the space and who applies. “For the Convenience collaboration with WCCD we are looking to champion and exhibit 4 working class artists from across Merseyside for an exhibition that will take place in May 2023 with location TBC. If you are interested in taking part in the project we would love for you to get in contact, tell us a bit about yourself and your practice and please also sign yourself onto the WCCD database and map.
What we need:
Brief overview of you and your practice
Website or social links
We have a super short turnaround for this so we will need all expressions of interest by the 14th of September for selection by the WCCD team and CG team on the 16th.
This project is subject to the funding being granted in early 2023 and anyone selected will be updated throughout the process, if the application has been successful or unsuccessful. This should be an incredible country wide project championing places of low artistic engagement and working class artists from across the country. We are really excited to be a part of this project and look forward to hearing from you.
