UKNA City Takeover: Leicester 2021 Presentation

Calls for Makers 12-May-2020 - 01-Jul-2020

UK New Artists is seeking up to 70 new artists from across the UK to takeover the city of Leicester for a long weekend.

Exhibit or perform your work in one of Leicester’s cultural spaces or unusual places, sharing your work with the public, and other participating artists including an opportunity to give an artist Q&A or short talk about the work. Leicester City Takeover is a meeting place for all creative disciplines, presenting work in a way that breaks down barriers between art forms and taking audiences on a journey across performance, visual arts, poetry and music. Artists will liaise with a Producer (Live Work) or Curator from the UKNA project team who will work with you to find the best space for your work and arrange all necessary technical and installation requirements.

The City Takeover is a unique opportunity and experience for artists. Be inspired by the range of work that you can see by your fellow artists from across the UK, and share your own work with new audiences and your peers. Enjoy exploring a new city and take part in talks and workshops with leading professionals and artists.

Artists will receive a £100 fee, plus accommodation, travel bursary, artwork shipping, food and all technical/venue costs are covered by UKNA.
