Artist Call Out - Early Years Commission, Scarborough Museums Trust


Making Stories (working title)

Scarborough Museums Trust (SMT) is looking to commission an artist/company to create an environment and experience for under 5s and their families, in one gallery space at Scarborough Art Gallery, as part of our temporary summer exhibition Future Lab (working title).

The commission will create a new and experimental environment in the gallery, transforming it into a captivating, magical and robust space which is stimulating, accessible and comfortable. The space should function as a self-led experience for visitors to discover and make their own stories e.g. through making activities, and will be animated by live performance /storytime sessions.  It will include a number of items from our permanent collection, ranging from artworks to natural history objects on the theme of nature and the natural world.

To receive further information, a copy of the brief and details about how to submit a proposal please email
