Future Popular is LeftCoast’s open commissions scheme for developing new work that makes a difference. LeftCoast is inviting artists from Blackpool and Wyre to help us find new audiences by creating projects that explore the space between art, popular culture and entertainment. Commissions of up to £5,000 are available to develop brilliant ideas over a six month period.
Through the Future Popular commissions we are seeking ambitious ways for artists to create a collaboration and conversation with the people who live, work and study here.
Our main criteria has been that the project needs to engage with a minimum of 50 people who don’t think necessarily the arts is for them.
The deadline for applications is 9am on Tuesday 26 August.
