Left Behind is a new programme of commissioned art works that are a direct response to the Financial Times article in December 2017 – ‘Left behind: Can anyone save the towns the economy forgot?’
LeftCoast are commissioning a series of works across art forms that will be presented as a programme throughout 2018.
We would like to commission work that explores the themes highlighted in this article. Work created can be a challenge, a comment, a provocation or an observation, we are not asking for solutions, but how, as artists, are we uniquely placed to frame a different conversation? We welcome proposals for projects of any art form that adds to this conversation. Proposals should in some way reference the personality of the town.
Proposals are welcomed from artists working in any media, working locally, nationally or internationally, ideas will be assessed on quality, relevance and potential.
Please see the full Left Behind artists brief which outlines the programme and application process in more detail.
We would like these commissions to be completed between April and Dec 2018.
We are looking for proposals from £500 to £5000. We will commission a minimum of 4 ideas, but have the potential to commission more.
5pm – Thursday 19 April
