The Core at Corby Cube and Northamptonshire Community Foundation are seeking artists to link up with local people to inspire and create new art work that harnesses the stories of Northamptonshire residents.
Core Calls was set up to ensure that people in the community facing loneliness and isolation or who were without access to broadband or hardware, still had access to a friendly voice to chat about the day, their concerns and fears and indeed hopes and aspirations during lockdown.
We wish to invite four artists to staff the phone line for a four-week period Monday 13 July to Friday 7 August. The artists would then use the material gained from their calls with local people as the basis for an artwork in their chosen discipline. Open to artists working in any discipline, The Core will showcase the work to the wider public at a later date.
This paid opportunity is open to all artists living and working in the UK. We are actively seeking artists from all back grounds and accessibility needs.
The deadline for submission is Friday 3 July at 4pm
