/ / /

leftcoastSave Our Stories commission is open to:

Professional artists, designers, architectural practices or collaborations between them. The commission is to develop, design and construct a fully functioning, roadworthy, safe and exciting vehicle or towable structure hence the selected individual company or group will need to demonstrate sufficient experience of being able to deliver the highest quality product – for that reason it is not open to students (sorry).

Submissions from outside theUKare welcome but please note there are no additional fees for travel from outside theUK.

Commission value: £35,000 (plus VAT) fully inclusive of all materials, vehicle production costs, travel, construction and fees.

The Commission:

To design and produce a magical transporter for  ‘Save Our Stories’ –  an ambitious, interactive, travelling spectacle that is both a unique artwork in its own right and a practical tool for engaging young people in storytelling and creative writing.

The ‘craft’ will be a vehicle in its own right or towable unit which is the focus for a range of storytelling, story gathering, creative writing and related performance activities to excite and enthral children, young people , and adults across Blackpool, Wyre and the North West of England.

The Save our Stories (S.O.S) craft should visually and physically relate to the idea that stories are disappearing, need rescuing  and be a ‘call to arms’ for young people to help with that mission. The exact interpretation of that theme is open to the interpretation of the selected artist, architect, designer or partnership.
