Marketing Blackpool is looking to commission three new installations for the 2014 edition of Showzam - one for the Olympia, Winter Gardens; one for Blackpool Tower Circus; and one for the city's Grand Theatre. The commissions offered are £44,000, £40,000, and £15,000, respectively.
The commissioning process is open to anyone who would like to apply, but companies are advised that only the very best submissions will be considered and that companies with a history of delivering high quality work on this scale will be favoured. Marketing Blackpool welcomes applications from individuals or groups, as well as a applications representing collaborative approaches so long as they meet the requirements specified within the brief.
The commissions are subject to funding from a Grants for the Arts application being made this summer, and selection at the submission stage does not guarantee work as the project is dependent on this subvention.
For more details on the commission and the venues, and on how to apply, see the full brief [doc]. Deadline for initial expressions of interest is 10 June 2013.
