Artistic Commissions 2019

During 2019 Contains Art will be preparing for its capital re-development and intends to deliver its artistic programme across the town of Watchet, Somerset, and surroundings locally. It wishes to invite proposals from artists for three separate commissions, May to October.

We are inviting artists to submit proposals for three separate commissions. These will need to respond to one or more of our on-going programme themes of Community, Identity, Place and Nature. We are also seeking proposals that will encourage the devising of different types of work - digital, performance or the involvement of young people. A proposal might be based on more than one of these, (for example digital and performance), but we want you to say which type of work best describes your submission.

The deadline for submissions is 6th August 2018 at 10am

join in we need you!

There are loads of ways to get involved - we always need more hands on deck. This can be an occasional hour or two or a regular volunteering slot.

For example, volunteer stewards help us to keep the gallery open as much as possible by manning the gallery or assisting with events.

We host lots of events where people help out with workshops and food.

We are always happy for people to come to us with ideas about things that could happen, especially in the courtyard which is a lovely welcoming space.

There are some opportunities to hire studio for short-term lets coming up, so let us know if you have any ideas of how you might use the space.

Most of all, please just come along and join in. Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
