We are seeking an artist to produce a community artwork at the Thamesmead Festival taking place on 14 August between 12-7pm at Southmere Park.

We would like a participatory artwork that can be co-built or added to throughout the festival using workshops that are inclusive of all ages.

We are open to creative ideas in any medium. It would need to consider scale and fit within the designated site plan.

The budget of up to £3,000 is to cover all artist fees, production, materials, installation, workshops, transportation, risk assessment, and rig and de-rig costs. Please submit a brief idea and written description, alongside a CV or previous work at a maximum of five pages to [email protected] 

The deadline for applications is Monday 26 July 2021 at 9am.

Please consider the environmental impact and legacy of your submission, particularly as it will be a one-off, bespoke commission.
