Disability Arts Online

As part of our Diverse Perspectives programme we are looking to commission a South East-based digital artist to collaborate with one or two Outside In artists to make a series of short, moving image, digital works to be showcased on Outside In and Disability Arts Online websites.

Deadline for producing the digital work would be 1st October 2012
Fee: £1500

We are looking for an artistic response to the work of one or two artists who have submitted galleries to the Outside In website. The work produced could be film, animation, audio or a combination of moving image work, that is aesthetically exciting.

Our aim is that the resulting piece(s) will encourage people to make art, by providing an exciting digital response to the Outside In artists technique or creative process.

These works will be shared on both DAO and the Outside In websites in order to give a deeper insight into the artists' working practices.

The deadline for producing the work would be 1 October 2012, in preparation for showcasing as part of the launch of Outside In at Pallant House Gallery on 27 October 2012.

We are also in negotiation to fund the costs of the touring of the digital artworks as part of the 2013 Outside In exhibitions starting in March 2013 and completing in April 2014.

We are looking for proposals from artists who identify with having an impairment or who consider themselves disabled, who would be keen to liaise with Outside In artists who are interested in having a unique aspect of their artistic process captured for posterity.

DAO will support the digital artist awarded this commission to make contact with the Outside In artist(s) to support the collaboration.

Proposals must include details of:
The style of presentation of the work (eg how it will display)
Accessibility (all video must be subtitled)
Details of previous work
A rough breakdown of costs involved in making the work, including artists
In addition to the fee of £1500 there is a limited amount of additional funds available for access and travel to be negotiated during the commissioning process.

Please send your proposals to trish@disabilityartsonline.org.uk by 15 June 2012
