CREATIVE COMMISSIONS CALL OUT

In partnership with Creative Central NCL and Curious Arts we’re offering two artist commissions and four Research and Development grants for Pride in the City 2024

 

Pride in the City, under the theme Unapologetically Visible, takes over Newcastle City centre in a new format this year, celebrating the vibrant and beautiful queer community, the valuable impact they have on society and the richness of their talents, from makers and creators to performers and activists.



In partnership with Creative Central NCL and Curious Arts we’re offering two artist commissions and four R&D grants and we're looking for applications from creatives and artists who want to showcase their work or ideas during Pride in the City.

 

All ideas submitted must consider and respond to the theme Unapologetically Visible, what this means to you and how you express and explore it is subjective, and creative interpretations and responses are welcomed.

 

Activities start on 8 July and culminate in the Pride Festival weekend of 19 – 21 July, and we’re inviting artists and creatives to apply for a total of six opportunities to create and showcase work during this time.

“In the journey of becoming unapologetic, LGBTQIA+ people aren’t becoming someone different, but they no longer feel the need to hide or be who other people want them to be, and it’s about no longer holding back from fully expressing ourselves due to the fear of being judged.”
