Following a successful Manchester Independents 2021, which commissioned 23 new projects and cast a spotlight on creativity across Greater Manchester, they are pleased to now be making plans for another Manchester Independents 2022/23.
We would love to see if any of our audience could mean literature is represented!
They are seeking 6 Artist Advisors who will:
  • join a panel to advise on and select commissions from GM artists
  • shape the MI23 programme
  • advise on our sister project, Greater Manchester Artist Hub, on a series of discussions and networking events for artists
  • attend meetings and branding workshops
  • provide feedback
Artist Advisors will receive a fee of £1000 for approx 5 days work, spread over 12 months.
DEADLINE: Friday 2nd September 2022, 5pm
Applicants should:
  • be based in Greater Manchester
  • have an established track record in their artform (at least 3 years of professional practice)
  • have some curatorial or selection experience (beneficial but not essential)
PLEASE NOTE: Artist Advisors will not be eligible to apply for a Manchester Independents commission in 2022/23.
They want to hear from a wide range of people from across the region and artforms. We particularly welcome applications from those currently under-represented in the industry.
