Harrow Arts Centre is a community driven facility which seeks to enhance the lives of all who live in Harrow through the transformative power of arts and culture. In this unprecedented time when many are struggling, we want to support both our communities and the artists we work with, many of whom have had their livelihoods snatched from them.
HAC is delighted to be able to offer a small number of commissions for artists, arts companies and creatives of all disciplines to create new pieces of work for our #HACFromHome strand during this lockdown period to inspire our audiences and communities. We are interested in hearing from musicians, theatre-makers, outdoor arts specialists, visual artists, workshop leaders and facilitators to provide us with:
Performances, recordings, podcasts, films, virtual exhibitions, workshops and interactive activities for all ages, uplifting, inspiring, innovative work which rises above the restrictive nature of lockdown and engages audiences in new ways, work which complies with social distancing rules and can be safely enjoyed by our audiences either online in the safety of their own homes or in a suitable outdoor space
Budget: Depending on the nature of the work and the scale of the proposal, a commission fee of up to £400 for participatory workshop activities and up to £1,200 for new work / adapted performances by companies is available. Please supply costings for your proposal, including artists’ fees and any materials required.
Deadline: 9pm, Monday 6th July 2020.
To Apply: Please submit a written proposal of no more than one page along with a brief description of you / your company and the work you do to Charlotte.Baldwin@harrow.gov.uk. Please also include a short explanation of the inspiration behind your proposal and how you think it will contribute to our communities and audiences at this difficult time.
