Coastival to commission new art

Local artists and performers are being offered the chance to create exciting new pieces of work to be unveiled as part of next year’s Scarborough arts festival Coastival.

Coastival organiser Create has got funding for four new art commissions on the theme ‘Exploring the Yorkshire Coast’.

Now local artists and arts companies are being invited to put forward ‘exciting and innovative’ bids for the £5,000 commissions.

Director Wendy Holroyd said Create had secured Arts Council funding for four new commissions for artists, working in any art form, to create new work in Scarborough.

 “We’re particularly keen to see work with strong artistic content and visual presence and impact, which can engage with diverse audiences,” she said.

“We're looking for professional, practising artists or companies with an aptitude for working in community settings and a proactive, collaborative approach that will engage a wide range of participants.

“In particular, we want these new commissions to push artistic boundaries and respond to the Scarborough landscape.”

The deadline for submissions is 31st May 2015.
