Peterborough Environment City Trust is looking to commission six artists (open to all disciplines) to create new works for their annual Green Festival. The artists will work alongside PECT and an Artistic Producer to create works which will form part of the Green Festival launch day on 13th August 2016 and the rest of the festival week.
The Festival encourages visitors to discover how to live more sustainably and to develop long-term behaviour change. Areas of focus include everything from sustainable transport, recycling, locally and sustainably produced food, and nature and biodiversity.
PECT are seeking proposals from emerging and established creative practitioners who are principally interested in developing an engaging piece of work that captures the public’s imagination. Each artist will be paid a fee of £2,000, with a further budget of up to £1,000 available each for materials. A travel and subsistence budget will also be available for research and activity trips to Peterborough.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please send 5 images or other documentation of your work, a CV and supporting statement (no more than 1 side of A4) outlining your artistic approach and some suggested areas of interest that could link your practice to the themes, by Wednesday 16th March 2016 to Karen Igho, Communities Team Leader, PECT, The Green House, 4-6 Cowgate, Peterborough, PE1 1NA or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
