Environmental Project 2020 Open Art Call, ArtWaves Festival


We’re looking for an environmental issue inspired commission as part of our environmental strand of the festival!

ArtWaves is a visual arts festival taking over Bridlington on 30 - 31 May 2020, showcasing traditional, digital, contemporary and urban art through a vibrant programme curated for all; from the experienced artist to those simply looking to get creative.

In 2019 we launched the Environmental Project to highlight current issues and raise awareness of negative practises impacting the environment.

This is a strand of the event we are very passionate about and we know it is a cause close to the hearts of many East Riding residents.

We are looking for an installation type piece that is static or interactive for members of the public to explore. Alternatively we would be extremely interested in an artistic activity to be staged over the festival weekend for our audience to try. 

Applications must be inspired or represent an environmental issue to be considered for this strand. 

This commission will attract an artistic fee of £500 for the selected applicant. Should the piece be an installation, this will remain the property of the artist, brought for display at the festival. 

The closing date for applications is Friday 21st February 2020 email for an application form and visit our website for further festival information.
