Call For Proposals
Artist Commission 2022: Saffron Walden Museum
The Lost Language of Nature Project
We’re thrilled to announce an artistic commission with Essex Cultural Diversity Project, to engage and work with diverse local communities on a nature- and language- based artwork.
Essex Cultural Diversity Project and Saffron Walden Museum invite proposals from creative practitioners for a new commission that will respond to the global taxidermy collections at the Museum, exploring with communities and visitors the everyday language used to describe animals and the natural world. Creative responses should aim to illuminate traditional and modern relationships of people with nature and the environment, celebrating diversity, folk and informal knowledge and engage with new communities who may not visit the Museum currently.
Deadline: 27 June 2022
Interviews: Mon 18 July (am) or Tue 19 July (pm)
Suggested Commission Start date: w/c 25 July 2022
Suggested Commission End date: Sat 31 December 2022
