BLUEPRINT: Housing & Wellbeing / Commission

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

 

Bristol Photo Festival in collaboration with Arnolfini are happy to offer a commission opportunity for a Bristol  based artist or artist collective to work together on a short project that uses photography to explore ideas around  housing and wellbeing. The project should embrace the medium of photography, although this can be combined  with text, sound, video or performance. We are interested in experimental approaches, socially engaged  practitioners and those who have previously co-developed photographic projects with community groups or  explored health issues although this is not mandatory. Photography should be a critical part of the creative  process. The outcome will be exhibited at Arnolfini and feature online on the Bristol Photo Festival website.

Deadline October 26, 2020
