Appledore Arts manages the Festival which from its inception has grown in quality, content and popularity. Today it is recognized as a major high quality visual arts event with an established regional profile and a growing national presence.
Our vision is to support, promote and advance the visual arts in the South West.
Artists are heavily involved in the inception and development of programming. Our objective is to offer an innovative, exciting and diverse range of experiences and activities for all age groups including children and young people.
Call for Artists:
We are now inviting applications based on the theme of «Coastlines» and we are interested in receiving proposals for any of the following categories :
4. Schools Project *
5. Festival Photographer
6. Exhibitions and Artists Trail
Our standard fee for selected artists ranges between £150 – £200 per day. We pay expenses for materials and we are also able to contribute towards travel expenses. For those artists who require accommodation we aim to provide lodgings with local residents who are supporters of the Festival. As part of the selection process we will discuss each project and agree a budget for materials prior to contract approval.
* Please note that each year we aim to select a proposal for a Schools Arts Project. This project involves working with local primary schools prior to the Festival with the outcome of the work being incorporated into the Festival. If you are interested in making a proposal we recommend that you provide a quote for the complete project, the number of schools you envisage working with, the material costs and time involved. On previous projects we have worked with a variety of local primary schools ranging from 3 up to 10 schools.
If you are interested in applying, there is no application form we would however like to know how you learnt about our Call for Artists. Please submit proposals with art work as required, if you would like your art work returned please include an SAE.
We prefer to receive applications in the mail. During December applications will be reviewed by a Selection Panel and all applicants will be informed of the outcome by mid January 2010.
Please send your full application to the address below.
