*Artist Commission*

Mitchell Arts Centre, on behalf of the Miner’s Strike Programming Group 
are looking to commission a new artist-led work which responds to the 
themes in the archival materials relating to the Stoke-on-Trent miners 

The group are happy to consider artists working across a range of 
medias. However the artist should be aware that the main gallery spaces 
are non-traditional and therefore work which is wall based (max 4 metres 
x 3 metres) or that covers a total floor space less than 9 sqm2. There 
is access to multiple power supplies for digital display.

The completed work will be on display at Mitchell Arts Centre in the 
first floor or second floor atrium from the 28 February - 30 April 2015.

*Timescale & Budget*

We have a combined launch event planned for the 28 February, and we wish 
for the work to be installed at Mitchell Arts Centre by this date.

Upon selection the artists would be able to visit the archives and meet 
with key persons involved in the project.

There is a workshop space available at Mitchell Arts Centre from mid 
January to mid February which can be available for the development of work.

A fee of £750 is available for the work, including all materials, travel 
costs and expenses.

A small additional budget is available to support installation and 
marketing costs.

The artist retains the copyright and ownership of the artwork and its 
concept. If archival materials are used, permission should be agreed 
with the owner, which we may be able to support with.

Submissions should be no longer than 2 pages of A4 and should include an 
artists statement, outline of your proposal and how it would respond to 
the objectives set out by the group, plus examples of your previous work.

All submissions should be made via email to zoe at mitchellartscentre.co.uk 
<mailto:zoe at mitchellartscentre.co.uk> by *Fri 9th January* at 5pm.
