ART COMMISSION Call for Proposals
midnight FRIDAY 19th January
Fee: £3000, inclusive of materials
The PoetTrio Experiment, an investigation into collaborative poetry translation, wants to commission an innovative artwork in response to poetry from the PoetTrio project in its original and translated languages.
The form of the work will be decided by the artist, but digital and filmic submissions are especially welcome.
Submit a written proposal (about 300 words) describing your planned artwork – including how it would use poetry from the PoetTrio project in its original and translated languages, and how it would engage audiences with the PoetTrio concept.
Collaborations are admissible. However, the fee remains fixed.
Consult this website and our YouTube channel to find stimulus material:
Selection will be made by a panel of researchers and practitioners from the Universities of Newcastle and Roehampton, led by director of the NCLA Professor Sinéad Morrissey
All entrants will be informed of the decision on 1st February 2018.
The winning commission must be delivered in a suitable form by 1st May 2018.
If you are submitting a proposal for our art commission, below is the list of British and Dutch poets who were members of our poetry translation ‘trios’, or PoetTrios.
