Artspace at Bradford Cathedral

Community Art Project: Call for Expressions of Interest

Project Brief

Artspace at Bradford Cathedral is offering a commission to a practising artist in any field to engage with the Cathedral community and wider Bradford communities, in an art project in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. This is a unique opportunity to capture the variety of thoughts and experiences of Bradford people as we attempt to “resume” our lives whilst still experiencing the effects of the pandemic and, through a creative medium, give opportunities for reflection, remembrance and healing.


This is envisaged as a five month project, from January-May 2021, and it will play a central role in the Cathedral’s commemoration events for the first anniversary of the Covid-19 pandemic, from March 2021 onwards.


Please submit your application to by 12.00 pm Tuesday 3rd November 2020.

Interviews will take place in the week beginning 9th November.

Please see for the artist brief, project background and details of how to apply.

For any informal conversation, please contact Maggie Myers via email:
