Announcing latest Norwegian Commission Opportunity

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: An opportunity for a Norwegian artist to create a new piece of moving image work for Berwick-upon-Tweed, UK. 

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival and NABROAD/Norwegian Collaborative Organisation for Contemporary Art Abroad are pleased to announce a new opportunity for an international artistic collaboration between North East England and Norway through film and moving image.

Supported by Arts Council England and The Royal Norwegian Embassy London, we will award a visual artist based in Norway the opportunity to create a new moving image work to premiere as part of the 9th Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, 2013 from 25th – 29th September in Berwick-upon-Tweed, UK.

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival is an international celebration of the art of film, set on the border between England and Scotland, and looking out onto the North Sea. NABROAD is a catalyst for international collaboration, based between Norway and the UK, and with strong connections to the North East and Scotland.

Together we will work to select and invite an artist to Berwick, work with the artist to create a new piece of work for the Festival, and to help it tour. The selected proposal will be awarded £2,000 GBP in artist fees, and installation costs will be covered in addition.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE EXTENDING THE DEADLINE BY 24HOURS!:
