Visualising Policy - Anti-Racism Open Call

Visualising Policy: Anti-Racism

Open call for global majority artist or illustrator to develop an illustrated PDF and content for socials

‘a space’ arts is looking to commission a global majority artist or illustrator to visually interpret their Anti-Racism Action plan, which consists of a statement and list of commitments.

The final outcome should be visual, accessible and informed by the artist’s perspective as a person of the global majority.

The commission could be a series of drawings, illustrations or collages, in all visual styles and media. The series should include one lead image which interprets the statement and 15 accompanying artworks that relate to the each of the 15 commitments in the Anti-Racism Action Plan. Artworks will need to be in both online, digital and printed formats.

There is a fee of £2,000 for this commission which includes all costs and expenses.

The commissioned artworks will be used and shared to promote anti-racism work and raise awareness: they will illustrate a PDF document which will be available to the public via website and in a space’s venues as a printed version; shared individually across social media channels; animated, to create gifs or a series of short films captioned in a range of languages.

Selection process: a small team of ‘a space’ staff and trustees will review EOIs and shortlist four artists. Those four artists will receive £125 to develop one draft artwork which relates to one of the 15 commitments. The draft artwork will be discussed and reviewed by the shortlisting team, who will then appoint one artist to complete the commission.
