Opportunity: Call out for artists in the south west

Outside In, Arts & Health South West (AHSW) and Bristol Museum & Art Gallery are working in partnership on a new touring exhibition, ‘Alternative Visions: Undiscovered Art from the South West.’ Submissions are NOW OPEN for artists, who align themselves with Outside In’s ethos, to enter work for possible inclusion in the show.

The project is happening thanks to a successful Arts Council England Strategic Touring Programme bid, which will enable the organisation and production of a touring exhibition of work by artists who feel excluded from the mainstream art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. The exhibition will tour to four partner museums in the South West: Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Falmouth Art Gallery, Poole Museum, and The Wilson in Cheltenham.

Artists who live in south west england who have an online gallery on the Outside In website will be able to submit two pieces of work for possible inclusion in the show. If you don’t have a page, and you feel you meet the Outside In criteria, you can create an online gallery easily by going to the ‘sign up’ tab on the website. Artists who need extra support to submit their work are encouraged to attend one of the scheduled Surgery Days taking place at eight venues across the South West, where you will get help to create an online gallery. The touring exhibition will be accompanied by interpretation and educational activities.
