The closing date is Monday 6 February 2023 at 9AM (GMT). We would like to commission three artists for £1,000 each to give a creative response to William Wordsworth’s Guide to the Lakes.
We are very open as to what form the final piece will take: it could be a physical or digital drawing, painting, photograph, film, story, musical piece, or something else. We would like the creative piece to be accessible and enjoyed by our audiences. Depending on their final form, we would like to display the three final pieces physically at Wordsworth Grasmere and/or online.
We envision that the project will begin in February 2023, and ask that the selected artists be in a position to complete their work by the end of March 2023. To apply you must be over 18 years old and based in the UK. We envision that the commission can be completed remotely, with the final artwork sent to us physically and/or digitally.
