Arts&Heritage is partnering with Wakefield Council to announce a new outdoor artist commission and invites artists, designers, sound artists, architects and performers to respond to the extraordinary historic site of Pontefract Castle near Wakefield, Yorkshire. This is an opportunity to research, develop and realise a new work for one of England’s most significant historic sites.

The resulting work will be shown at Pontefract Castle during late August / early September 2021. The commission budget is £15,000.

The full Artists’ Brief can be found here.

Please send your Expression of Interest, up to 8 jpg images of recent work (this would help if it was as a short PowerPoint) and a summary CV to Becky Orwin, Arts&Heritage Coordinator, [email protected].

Deadline for Expressions of Interest: 5pm, Monday 16 November
