We are delighted to announce that we are working with Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 on our new project Abundance, to uncover the hidden talent in Coventry and Warwickshire’s South Asian communities!
You may not yet think of yourself as an artist or a creative – or you may be new to this, just starting out or mid-career. We want to hear from you.
Are you a poet who’d like to perform? A costume maker with flair and talent – would you like to design for a parade? A dancer who can choreograph and enthuse others to perform? Could you make and design lanterns that could be carried for a carnival parade? Are you a DJ? Do you have ideas and want to see how they could translate into an outdoor performance space? Are you looking for collaborators to work with?
Successful applicants will form part of a network of artists and have the opportunity to be part of the co-creation of next year’s spectacular Carnival of Lights procession with communities in Coventry. Anyone who is selected for Abundance will get a seed commission of £1000 to develop their idea, alongside an 8-10 week programme of workshops, mentoring and support.
To find out how to apply, read the full call-out document below.
Applications close – Sunday 10 January 2021.
