Bournemouth Arts by the Sea festival will be awarding three new commissions, to include:
1 x lead commission / £3500
2 x supporting commissions / £2500
Artists are invited to submit proposals until midnight on April 13, 2018.
Commission Application Budget—What to include
You will be asked to submit a commission budget which breaks down project expenditure. We would expect this to include:
· Cost of materials
· Artist fees
· Accommodation and travel
Commission Application Budget—What not to include
While the work is expected to be as self-sufficient as possible, the festival would expect to cover the costs of:
· Security and stewarding
· Power, barriers, safety lighting
· Some sound equipment where applicable.
If you expect your production requirements to be significant, we advise you contact the festival in advance of your application.
The commissions are open to all, provided the lead contact is a resident in the UK. This includes early career artists and any form of creative organisations.
Applicants with additional funding (who are applying for a portion of the cost of a co-commissioned work) are eligible.
Proposals for developments of existing work are eligible.
The project must be presented at Bournemouth Arts by the Sea 2018.
All project expenditure must take place after the panel decision has been formally announced to successful applications.
Commissions will normally be paid in two installments:
90% at the start date following confirmation of funding and provision of a detailed budget.
10% on satisfactory completion of the project and the project self-assessment and evaluation.
