The Battersea Arts Centre, London, are looking for partners to help build a new national and international network to explore the role which producers, cultural organisations and artists can play to co-create change with community partners. The background to this callout is described in this blog by David Jubb, Artistic Director of Battersea Arts Centre.
There are various ideas for what the network might involve. These include:
- Practical events to exchange knowledge, develop skills and community partnerships
- Commissions for co-creating change, originally conceived as 10 commissions x £12,000
- Subject to funding, further commissioning to grow and spread good ideas in new territories
- An annual sharing and market place for national and international partners
The BAC are interested in connecting with people working across the arts and museums sector and beyond. They are looking for between 20 and 40 partners who might be producers, organisations or artists.
If you are interested in being a part of the network, please complete the Expression of Interest Questions by 31 May 2018. Alternatively, you can send the BAC a video if you prefer that format.
The BAC are playing a curatorial role to bring together the network from this call out. They will be in touch in early June to let you know the outcome of the process. If you have been invited to be part of the network they will invite you to an initial gathering in July 2018 to co-develop the ideas and future process for the network.
