Artist Call Out, Royal Museums Greenwich


Royal Museums Greenwich comprises the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House and Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre. Together we’re dedicated to enriching people’s understanding of the sea, the exploration of space, and Britain's role in world history. Royal Museums Greenwich, along with the rest of the world, has been navigating these past few months through unprecedented and challenging times.

As we look to the future and the gradual reopening of our sites, we are thinking about how to welcome our valued stakeholders and participants in this post Covid-19 world. In consideration of the current Black Lives Matter movement, it is also essential for us to re-evaluate and challenge our past museum practices and to communicate our values and commitment towards a more equitable society

This project aims to deliver a dynamic and inclusive welcome illustrating our values as a Museum, to open dialogue and representation of all identities. In doing this we want the lived experience of an artist of African or Caribbean heritage to inform the framework within which we create a welcome back to our communities.

We are seeking a creative practitioner, or artists collective, with experience in a public participatory practice, to produce a framework for co-curated display(s) which will ‘dress’ our sites as a statement of invigoration and inspiration for reopening, one that has the potential to evolve over the summer months as the nation adjusts to its new way of life.

A daily rate of £300 is anticipated –with the creation of the framework taking up to 5 days. Material budget additional depending on co-curated outcome.
