The successful artist(s) will work with The Tetley and a partner organisation between late May and early September to deliver a participatory project with young people. The artist, working with the participants, will share and exhibit the outcomes of the project in the Shirley Cooper Gallery between late May and early September 2020.
The artist will work closely with the Participation Producer at The Tetley to plan and deliver the project.
This is an exciting opportunity for an artist or artists to undertake a highly respected commission which is well supported by project partners. The ARMA Commission will form part of The Tetley’s artistic programme and will be widely promoted, both nationally and internationally.
