About Writing an Artist Brief
When writing a brief for an artist commission, be sure to include questions that will enable you to gather the right information about the artists’ proposals for you to make a selection.
Here you can download a template on how to write an artist brief, as well as an example of a previous Arts&Heritage Brief: a Meeting Point 2 Project with Hexham Old Gaol.
Following this, you can read a Case Study on this subsequent project at Hexham Old Gaol by Matt Stokes.
Writing a clear, informed and considered Brief will help you to find an artist that is right for your project.
It is usual once artists have been shortlisted, to offer a small proposal fee for them to work up an idea for the project. The panel will then be able to make a more informed decision about which artist(s) to select.
