Open Call to Artists (Paid opportunity)
From Darkness to Light
Diversity Arts is looking for three textile artists to take part in an upcoming project . In collaboration with the Daisy project and Glasgow Women’s Library. The project focuses on the stories of twelve women, from different backgrounds, the obstacles they have overcome throughout their lives, and the inherent strengths women possess.
From each woman’s story, six key points will be looked at. From each experience, feelings and thoughts will be transferred onto textile and conveyed into ‘outfits’. An ‘awareness production’ event will be performed in Glasgow and possibly other cities. The selected artists will work with one community group each and develop twenty-four ‘outfits’. We expect to perform in the 16 days of action
The project begins in August 2016. Artists will begin in Sept/Oct 2016. Interviews will be held in Aug/Sept 2016
If you would like to be considered for this project, please send a personal statement with your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
