ARTISTS from across the region are being called to hand in proposals to create pieces inspired by the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The Birmingham 2022 culture programme is offering four artists the chance to create work based on four sporting events at the upcoming games.
The proposals will be for four pieces with commissions of up to £25,000 to create new public space works in any art form around Aquatics – Swimming and Para Swimming, Athletics and Para Athletics, Basketball 3×3 and Wheelchair Basketball 3×3 and Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls.
Raidene Carter, executive producer for Culture and Live Sites at Birmingham 2022 said; “We are delighted to once again be calling upon the fantastic artists based in Birmingham and the West Midlands to help us bring the Birmingham 2022 culture programme to life.
“This time, we are inviting creatives from across all artistic disciplines to submit proposals for commissions of up to £25,000 to artistically interpret some of the sporting highlights of the Commonwealth Games.
“From podcasts and poetry, to art installations and animation, we want to hear from artists who can show us how inspired they are by The Games and who want to be part of the biggest one-off culture and sporting event to happen in the West Midlands.”
The deadline for proposals is September 14.
