The Tunnel Gallery Commission

Navigator North are inviting commission applications from visual artists on behalf of The Tunnel Gallery as part of Celebrating Hidden Middlesbrough.

We are looking for an artist to research and respond to the hidden heritage narrative that exists within Middlesbrough and in particular to Middlesbrough Winter Garden and the High Street Heritage Action Zone.

An initial period of research will result in work which engages with the public and can be sited on the Albert Road billboard underneath the A66 road bridge and virtually via the online gallery. Activities as part of this should aim to connect with communities to uncover and celebrate heritage stories in a meaningful way.

The commission will take place in October/November with the completion of work and install by the end of November 2021.

£2000, artist time based on 8 days work at £250/day
£750, material/production costs
£500, costs associated with research/engagement activities

Deadline for applications 9am Thursday 30th September
