Making Language: Open Call for Creative Practitioners - Amelia

An exciting opportunity for a creative practitioner or group to create a new artwork or cultural content inspired by languages and dialects in Kent.

The Kent and Medway Museum Partnership National Portfolio Organisation (KMMP NPO) seek proposals for a participatory creative commission that will research and experiment creatively with languages and dialects in Kent. The commission will explore how language develops and adapts through time and place. It will also cast a light on connections between language, communities, cultures, and identities.

The selected creative practitioner will be responsible for creating a new artwork or cultural content for public display or performance. They will work together with local people to explore the commission themes, providing opportunities for participants to use their languages creatively and inform the final artwork/content.

We would love to hear from people who have an active creative practice in any art form at any stage in their career, including individuals, partnerships, groups or organisations.

How to apply

Closing date for expressions of interest midday Monday 26 February 2024.

The project will be managed by Helena Copsey, Arts Development Manager at The Amelia Scott. If you have any questions about the commission please email arts@tunbridgewells.gov.uk.

This project is managed by the Kent and Medway Museum Partnership National Portfolio Organisation, a group of four museums (The Historic Dockyard Chatham, Canterbury Museums & Galleries, Guildhall Museum Rochester and The Amelia Scott) funded by Arts Council England.
