New opportunities for artists

Bluecoat is pleased to announce two new opportunities for artists: the Granby Winter Garden commission in partnership with Granby Four Streets Community Land Trust, and a year-long Studio Bursary at The Royal Standard in partnership with Bloomberg New Contemporaries for one of their 2010-2016 alumni. 

Granby Winter Garden commission

Granby Winter Garden will be a new community-owned space in the heart of the Granby neighbourhood in Liverpool 8.  Two Victorian terraced houses will be transformed into a beautiful indoor garden and a unique resource for creative community action, cultural production and exchange.

Granby Four Streets Community Land Trust, in partnership with Bluecoat, seeks an artist to develop a horticultural work or series of works for Granby Winter Garden, in collaboration with the design team, Assemble, and local people.  Alongside devising planting, there is scope for the commissioned artist to propose further interventions into the Winter Garden space, or within the local neighbourhood, or to propose events, performances or workshops that accompany the making of the garden.

The closing date for the Granby Winter Garden Commission is 3 May 2017, 12 noon
