In response to feedback about the inevitable challenges of physical access to many of Saltaire’s listed venues, we applied to Arts Council England for funding to commission new light- and digital-based work to take our programming out to audiences. Subject to final confirmation, we have been successful in this bid, and the call is out for artists now:
Based loosely around the theme ‘Inside Out’, there are two strands of commissioned activity:
· Two large-scale light-based commissions
Two artists will be commissioned to create video projections mapped onto the front of two selected Saltaire terraced houses, ‘removing the front wall’ to reveal their artistic vision of what might be taking place within.
· The ‘Artquest’ trail of 15 QR code plaques with downloadable digital content
Artists working in any medium are invited to submit digital work for the Artquest trail. Works can be in any standard digital file format including jpg, pdf, doc, mp3, mp4 etc. not larger than 10mb
All works must loosely address the theme ‘Inside Out’ and must be accessible to and appropriate for broad audiences including young children.
