Mayo County Council’s Arts Service - Artist Commission: Navigating a Future

Deadline: 30 September 2020 17:00

Mayo County Council’s Arts Service are commissioning professional practicing artists living in Mayo to create artwork in response to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and our lives going forward. This is an opportunity for artists to create artwork that will be presented in 2021.  Artists working in all artforms are welcome to apply.

Artists are best placed to respond to these unusual times of social change through their artistic practice. This commission will give selected artists an opportunity to research and create new work that explores and reflects on questions, insights and themes that have arisen from the Covid-19 pandemic and our future.  This commission is in recognition of the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on the County of Mayo and commissioned artwork will create a dialogue through contemporary arts and provide a legacy for the Mayo public.
