Wood Pellet sculpture (RHI inspired) Competition

Calls for Makers 01-Feb-2019 - 15-Mar-2019

The Imagine Belfast Festival of Ideas & Politics is running a tongue in cheek competition where you can send photos of ‘wood pellet’ sculptures as a satire on the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, also referred to as the Cash for Ash scandal.

Craft practitioners are invited to make models and artefacts using wood pellets and to send photos of their creations to the Imagine Belfast Festival which will be available to view on their Instagram platform. A panel of judges including the artist Rita Duffy and Sarah Corbett, founder of the Craftism Collective, will select the most interesting exhibits for display during the festival. A modest prize of £200 will be presented to the winning sculptor.

"Our 5th festival is taking place during 25-31 March 2019 with over 150 events across the city. We hope you will join us in debating and considering the big issues of our troubled times including new ideas on politics, culture and activism. There’s something for everyone in our eclectic programme, as we try to make sense of this volatile world. Events include workshops, talks, exhibitions, film screenings, performance art, music, theatre, poetry, tours, and comedy with most events free."
