Guerrilla Artist, Alternative Futures Group

North West Closes Tuesday 30 September 2014 Paid (£10k-15k pro rata) Part time Artform: crafts, combined arts, dance, film, interdisciplinary arts, literature, photography, music, theatre, visual arts   Contact: Dawn Moorhouse



Submissions are invited from visual artists across all mediums to take part in

ALTERNATIVE FUTURES GROUP’s Guerrilla Arts Project 2014/2015.

We are committed to providing Person Centred care and support for people staying within one of our eight North mental health West Treatment and Recovery Centres. We also recognise the importance of the physical environment in the rehabilitation process and for this reason wish to commission artists to take part in our‘Guerrilla Arts’scheme, in which we aim to transform each of our Treatment and Recovery Centres into places which use visual arts to aid the healing process.

We are now looking for three artists to work either individually or together in our Treatment and Recovery Centre in the Wirral.

The theme

The theme is either Treatment and Recovery or Hope. The artists will use any media, whether that be installation, photography, painting, sculpture, murals…… to transform the currently quite clinical settings into inspirational, stimulating, thought provoking, peaceful environments. It would be beneficial if service users could be involved in the creation of the artwork but not essential.

Could you be one of our Guerrilla Artists?


The fee for each artist will be £200 + cost of materials. Please note this is a one off fee not the pro rata salary range (had to choose one of these to post the advert)

Proposals can be emailed to posted to Alternative Futures Group, Lion Court, Kings Drive, Kings Business Park, Prescot, L34 1BN

Please include in your proposal;

  • What you plan to create, with sample images if possible

  • How this fits the theme of either treatment and recovery or hope

  • What materials you would need including approximate costings 

  • Your contact details 

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 30th September 2014

For more information or to arrange a visit to the center please Dawn Moorhouse, or 0151 489 5501
