For Beverley Puppet Festival (interim programme 2021)
Beverley has long been a town of sanctuary since the Middle Ages. Four famous sanctuary stones stand at its edges and a towering Minster at its heart, marking an ancient boundary line where fugitives could seek shelter from the law for up to 40 days. Today, Beverley remains a town of sanctuary but of a different kind - as a safe place to live and work; as a place to escape away to on holiday; as a place of creative sanctuary - a town filled with arts and culture.
During its interim year, Beverley Puppet Festival with support from Arts Council England, Beverley Town Council and Beverley Minster, wishes to commission a puppetry or stop motion animation artist to create a short film using stories and anecdotes about the town of Beverley collected from residents past and present.
The chosen artist should:
- Be based in England (the majority, if not all, of the work will take place remotely)
- Have a proven track record of creating puppet theatre or film and/or stop motion animation
- Have experience with creating/editing digital media and working with moving images
- Have access to their own tools and software in order to deliver the commission
- Be willing to collaborate with the festival team in selecting locally gathered stories and working together on the creative direction of the piece
- Be available to focus on this work April and May 2021 with the final film being exhibited and shared from Summer 2021
Artist fee: £2,500.00
