Open Call: Shed Space

Application Deadline: Monday 28 May 2018, 5pm

Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover are inviting expressions of interest from creative practitioners in all fields to utilise or inhabit the shed spaces located in the courtyard of the Studio Pavilion throughout June – September 2018.

Over the summer months these spaces will be unoccupied. We have no budget to programme these spaces however we recognise that space is valuable and that the provision of this alone could provide or fulfil an opportunity.

We are open to the space being used for a variety of means be it as a workshop or fabrication space, as an artist’s studio or to film; an exhibition space or space in which to host events, performances or screenings; or simply to experiment and try out new ideas. The focus can be on creative output, engagement, diversity, research, or a combination of all of the above. The Sheds are large and versatile spaces that could be utilised as one whole space to fulfil a number of uses, or be separated to accommodate a number of people at one time. Space is available from June – September 2018. The length of time you would like to inhabit or utilise the space is negotiable, we will accept a variety of proposals from one-off events that may require the space for as little as a week to those who may wish to use the space for the whole duration.

Floor plans and dimensions of the Shed Spaces can be found here.

Proposals will be selected by Louise Briggs, Arts Programmer & Beth Shapeero, Learning & Engagement Coordinator. Selection will be based on need, the relevance and or interest in working on our site, as well as the quality of your proposal.
