We are looking for creative practitioners to work collaboratively with members of the National Science and Media Museum as well as community stakeholders and researchers on a Spring 2019 exhibition. The exhibiton will look at how different communities in Bradford have taken control of their own reality by bypassing national and mainstream media, using local-to-local alternative distribution networks and adapting or re-purposing available technologies to record their own histories and create their own cultural spheres.
As part of the exhibiton we will be looking at photography, community radio stations, soundscapes in mosques and activist publications (amongst many other examples) using objects and stories from Bradford as well as from the museum’s collection.
We encourage applications from practitioners working in all mediums including illustration, sound design, videography, zine making and beyond and are particularly keen to hear from people living or working in the Bradford Metropolitan District.
To apply, please send a maximum of two pages outlining by 16th November:
• relevant previous work (your practice and approaches)
• a statement outlining your interest in this project
• your experience of working collaboratively with communities
Creative practitioners will receive a fee of £2000 for an anticipated 10 days of work. All production costs for proposed exhibits will be considered separately to this fee.
Please send all applications and enquires to Creative Producer Alice Parsons at Alice.Parsons@Scienceandmediamuseum.org.uk
