    Open Call: Artists Resources

    preview 18 June 2020

    An opportunity for artists to create
    a shared resource for warp ! g39.

    Do you have a skillset, expertise or a piece of knowledge / research that you want to share with the sector? We are offering fees of £600 to develop shareable resources or guides that can be used now and in the future.

    We are calling for artists who can generate resources that can be shared with other artists. At g39 we are big believers in freely sharing knowledge and information as a way of strengthening the community.

    Resource topics could be anything that you think would be beneficial to artists at any stage of their development. You might compile a guide on: socially engaged practice, bilingual working, financial wellbeing, peer networks, practice and protest, gallery technician knowhow, self-employment, rethinking success, application writing, sustainability - we are open to ideas. As a collection we hope the resources might indicate how practice can positively influence wellbeing and society.

    Your resource will be hosted or signposted on the warp ! g39 websites. Its format should enable it to be archived, retrieved and freely available for use.

    Please ensure that by producing and publishing your resource you are not putting yourself, the public or g39 at risk by encouraging the spread of Coronavirus (for example by encouraging groups to gather).

    There is a budget of £600 for the commission. Up to 90% (£540) of this can be released in advance of the commission. We subscribe to the Paying Artists guidelines (g39 is a ‘Category A’ organisation in the Framework). This budget should cover your fee and production / publishing costs. We want to see proposals that are ambitious and creative, while ensuring a level of fair pay for the commissioned artist.

    You will be supported by the g39 team to develop the resource. This includes technical advice, professional development and promotion of your work and you as a commissioned artist. All contact between you and us will take place online, ensuring that everyone is encouraged to stay home and keep safe.

    Resources will be available no later than November 2020.
