This is an open call for artists to suggest material for The Library Presents menu for Autumn 2020.
Deadline for Expressions of Interest: 23:59, 7th February 2020
The Library Presents programme has a two-phase selection process:
1. An open call, where we welcome Expression of Interest (EOIs) from artists, suggesting material for The Library Presents menu.
2. The selected EOI's are compiled onto a Menu that is shared with the public. The public then help choose what arts activities they would like to see in their respective libraries.
The Library Presents is currently planning for our Autumn Season (Oct-Dec 2020) which will include a mixture of performances, digital work and participatory workshops.
Cambridgeshire County Council has been awarded National Portfolio Organisation funding from Arts Council England to run The Library Presents in partnership with Babylon ARTS until 2022. The Library Presents programme will bring quality arts activities into Libraries in market towns and villages across Cambridgeshire. The programme aims to inspire and deliver a vibrant inclusive programme of high quality arts activities in accessible and welcoming venues.
We need to create a menu that contains a balance of art forms and which is not overwhelming for those choosing from it. There will be a selection process and artists will be notified by 13th March 2020 about whether they have been shortlisted and included on the menu. The Menu will then be shared with Library volunteers and local community groups who will help select the arts activities. In May artists will be notified whether they have been selected for the Autumn 2020 programme.
