Artist Call-Out: Love Letter to Radstock

Artist Call-Out: Love Letter to Radstock
THE COMMISSION
Creativity Works are commissioning a piece of socially engaged art inspired by Valentine’s Day for the town and community of Radstock, where Creativity Works is based.
The commissioned project must include the audience/participants in the creation and presentation of the artwork.
The audience/participants must be able to engage and interact with the artwork, participate in artistic activity and become an integral part of the artwork itself. We aim to create high quality artistic output, social interaction, and to bring a sense of playfulness and wonder to Radstock. Essentially, it must be a metaphorical ‘love letter’ by, with and for the people of Radstock.
The project commissioned will be of the highest artistic quality and include the following outcomes:
  • serve as a catalyst for social interaction
  • promote civic togetherness and pride
  • encourage participants to engage in further artistic practice
Any resulting pieces of art will be offered to the locality for further engagement and the process will be recorded and placed online as an inspirational legacy.
