Rossall Beach Artists Commissions

Rossall Beach

We are looking for proposals from artists to create a temporary intervention in the Rossall Beach area of the Fylde Coast in North West England, in the spring of 2016. The work will be commissioned by Rossal Beach Community Group, supported by LeftCoast.

We would like to commission an artist to work on the development of a new piece of work within the unique location of ?of Rossal Beach. At this stage we are not being prescriptive about what form we see this commission taking, we are looking for proposals across all mediums, from sound and visual art to performance and theatre. Ultimately what we want is something that engages the people ?that live here in a creative conservation and highlights the beach to both local people and those outside of the area. The work will seek to celebrate this unique area of Coast, explore its creative potential, engage a new audience and take inspiration from the community group who looks after this stretch of coast line. Although temporary the work will create a legacy which can be built on through future projects.

The work could be something on the beach, something in the sea, a new way of exploring the area, it might be an event, or a month long intervention. It will definitely be temporary but we hope the benefits are far reaching and will inspire future creative work. At our disposal we have a wealth of local knowledge, a very active community group, support from the LeftCoast team and links to the local authority, Wyre Borough Council.

The deadline for applications is the 16th October at 5pm. Please send your applications to researchingrossall@gmail.com
