Creatives Wanted: Lead a Home is Where the Art is Workshop/Performance

we have had a few issues with some of the applications we have received so far, so please read all of the below, thank you
* please note you are applying to run one self-contained workshop and not a series over 13 weeks.  you can apply to run more than one workshop but must use a new application for each workshop. each workshop you submit MUST be different

 

Due to a successful funding application, Live Art Local is very happy to announce the launch of a new project, and as a result, ten paid opportunities for artists, musicians, singers, poets, writers, theatre-makers, and others over the course of the pandemic.

 

Over 13 weeks starting from the 13th of May (every Wednesday) we will be running a weekly workshop via Zoom for people to join in with at home.  We already have three of the workshops planned for but have openings for another ten.  We want you and your creativity to join us and run a workshop from your home, for people in their homes.

THE RULES:

Every workshop is an hour-long, must use, where possible, things most people are already likely to have at home, and they must positively, creatively engage people during this period of isolation and distancing, apart from that we have no criteria so feel free to let your imagination run wild.

As we are using the pro version of Zoom security should not be an issue and through this we can offer places for up to 100 people to join the workshop.  However, that is not to say your workshop has to be aimed at 100 people, it could be as little as five… it is up to you!

 

Artists will be paid the Friday following their workshop via paypal, where this is not possible we will arrange another way of making payment.

 

The fee for a workshop is £150, and we have a budget of up to £50 for materials, although we need to agree to these beforehand.

 

To apply please fill out the form below ASAP.  As mentioned previously this is to start very soon and so we have a small window to receive and assess applications.

Applications close on Friday 15th and we will notify successful applicants every three days from today so you will hear very soon whether you have been successful.

 

In exceptional circumstances, we will (where there is a small theatre company or music ensemble) make an exception to the workshop rule and permit a performance, though this will not affect the fee, and in these cases, unless the members of the company live together, strict social distancing rules (2m apart) must apply.

In the above circumstances, we will ask you to Livestream the performance with us and make a recording available so that we can make it available to those unable to join the livestream.  You retain copyright.

 

Please note as this is online we are able to accept applications from around the UK!

 

 

Solo Show Opportunity for Artists Working in 2D

This is an opportunity for an artist or collective working in any 2D media, including illustration and graphic design to have a solo exhibition at our Garbos space in Southsea.

This exhibition will run for a period of 2 months and is a chance to showcase your talent to a wider audience and to make art matter in the community.

Our Garbos Gallery space is situated in the heart of Southsea, inside the modern Garbos salon and yet separate from it.  Sticks Gallery/Live Art Local CIC took over management of this space from Island City Art and before that Add Art, so it has a history of showcasing great emerging artists.

There is no theme and the only prerequisite is that work submitted is not offensive (graphic nudity, swear words, concerning religion, etc) and ready to be hung.  This means that work must be framed (if required), with loops or D-Rings at the back and wire or cord connecting them (mirrorplates are not an option).  The gallery wall uses a hanging system and no work is attached to the wall itself.  Due to this box canvases also need to come with hanging wire.  Works on paper can be hung without a frame with the use of clips that we can supply.

This space can accommodate between 1 large (2x2m) piece or numerous smaller pieces.

Our current exhibition in this space, Andrew De Bere’s “Painting with Light” has been very popular and half of the pieces have already sold.  If you wish to see his work it is on display until our next exhibition in the space.

You can submit to this open call either as a guest with a one off donation of £3.  We are a not for profit organisation and this money helps us to carry on our work and contributes to the exhibition costs.  There is no other money involved.  To submit work please pay your donation via paypal. Upon payment you will be redirected to a form where you will be asked to complete your details and upload up to 4 examples of your work.
