SOlo Exhibition 

Fantastic Exhibition Opportunity available In Sunderland, (April 1 - 29th) Artists fee of £700 available.


SUBMISSION DEADLINE _ 20th March 2020_5PM  

We recognised many opportunities support emerging practitioners and young graduated and are often age specific. We wanted contribute to balancing the scales of this and produce an open call which is specifically for regional and local artists from the North East who are over 50 from any visual arts discipline.

Norfolk Street Arts has partnered with MBC Arts Wellbeing CIC , Sunderland Culture and School of Art & design at the University of Sunderland. This project will offer one emerging practitioner aged 50+ the chance to develop the presentation and curation of their work in generous large exhibition space spaces.

This is a great opportunity to exhibit as an emerging creative and  meet other professional artists within our community as well as benefiting from the networking and support provided  by  the Norfolk Street Arts & MBC Arts Wellbeing CIC Partnership.

If shortlisted you may be asked to attend a meeting to discuss your application with a panel from the partnership organisations.
