SeaScapes and SeaScapes Co/Lab is excited to offer a funded artists commission that collaborates within and across different communities in Sunderland to explore the positive influence diverse and migrant cultures have had on our local food traditions
SeaScapes Co/Lab: ‘Coastal Cuisine’ will support a socially engaged glass/ceramic artist/maker based in the North-East, to explore links between the seascape we see and the foods that we eat with communities living in the coastal city of Sunderland.
We would particularly like to connect with artists who have a strong relationship with the marine and maritime heritage of the coastline that runs between the River Tyne to the River Tees.
Food is a great connector, and we would like to engage an artist or a maker to collaborate within and across different communities in Sunderland to explore the positive influence diverse and migrant cultures have had on our local food traditions.
SeaScapes Co/Lab: ‘Coastal Cuisine’ is open to artists at all stages in their career, and we will consider all creative practices that are inspired by marine and marine heritage and are participatory/community engaged.
There is one artist commission opportunity available for a total fee of £6000 including all costs (Travel, equipment, materials etc). We expect the number of days spent on the commission would not exceed 20-25 days. This work can take place between July 2022 and November 2022. A final sharing/celebration event will happen in November 2022.
For more information on this opportunity and how to apply, please click here or contact Suzy O’Hara from Sunderland University on suzy.o’email@example.com.
DEADLINE for applications is Midday on Friday 1st July 2022.
This commission is a collaboration between SeaScapes, Co-lab Sunderland, University of Sunderland, Newcastle University, National Trust and National Glass Centre, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
