Artists commissions

The Creative People and Places Consortium for Boston and South Holland, Lincolnshire is seeking applications from artists and companies to contribute to the consultation stage of their new and exciting arts engagement programme – Transported.

Transported seeks to inspire and amaze and has been designed to develop new ways of engaging more people in great arts experiences in areas of least engagement. Transported will create excellent art that is appropriate for rural communities, is determined by rural residents and is innovative and cutting edge.

We are looking for a minimum of 40 exciting and innovative, individual artists and companies of quality to lead the community consultation activities that will inform our investment of £2.6 million over the next two and a half years.

The Transported consultation programme will provide real and innovative arts experiences to the people of Boston and South Holland, before asking them what should happen next.

Our approach is to harness the creative thinking of artists and the excitement and power of arts activity to navigate the barriers that have traditionally stopped people engaging with the arts and inspire them to help us identify what should happen next.
