We’re contacting you with a fantastic opportunity to work with artists to broaden your audience reach You may have heard that Arts&Heritage, a Northumberland based agency with specialism in working with museums and heritage organisations has been awarded funding to run the second phase of their action learning programme Meeting Point.
This is an exciting opportunity for modest sized museums in the North East, Yorkshire and the North West. The programme, which is detailed in the attached document, results in an artist’s commission within your collection or space as well as a supporting programme of workshops and talks.
Meeting Point has been running in the North East and Yorkshire for the past year and has been extremely successful. Details of it can be found on the Arts&Heritage website www.artsandheritage.org.uk and you are invited to launch events at those museums. The next event is Kirkleatham Museum, Cleveland and Redcar on August 30th and Thackray Medical Museum, Leeds on September 15th.
The choice of museums to be included in this second phase will be a competitive one and we do need to receive your early interest by Friday 24th September. We know that this is a busy time for you, but please take time to read through the attached document and email your interest to me by the September date. You will see that all travel expenses and associated costs are provided for within the MP budget, as is a commissioning budget, marketing and photography etc. What we need from you is the commitment of your time. To apply, please fill out an online form at https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=147187957395
