Blueprint100 are seeking emerging creatives under the age of 30 to stage artistic interventions in their local community in an attempt to draw attention to the declining economic condition of Dumfries town centre.
With the support of The Hunter Foundation, as part of their 100 Disrupters program, we are offering five commissions of £200 each (inclusive of all fees and costs).
Interventions can take on any creative form, live performance to a static installation and beyond, as they take place in Dumfries and provide some form of commentary on the current state of the town centre.
Interested parties are invited to attend a practical workshop on Saturday the 18th of August from 12:00 to 16:00 at The Baker’s Oven hosted by street artist Amy Whiten. This will be an ideal opportunity to discuss potential ideas and become familiar with fundamental street art techniques that may be useful.
Recipients of the commissions are also encouraged to make use of ‘The Melting Pot’; blueprint100’s weekly drop-in workshop space that takes place in The Stove Café every Tuesday from 18:00 to 20:00. We would like this to become a working space for the duration of the commissions and open up conversation around themes and ideas explored with others.
To apply, please send a C.V., alongside a letter of interest (200-300 words) including any initial ideas or provocations you have for the commission to email@example.com by midday (12:00) on Friday the 31st of August.
We would like to encourage anyone who has a strong interest in this to apply regardless of previous experience or area of expertise.
