Artangel visited Leeds a few weeks ago to discuss their plans for Open Platform, a new £1million initiative in partnership with Radio 4. They are actively seeking submissions for regional, site-specific work. Previous commissions have included Jeremy Deller's The Battle of Orgreave, Michael Landy's Break Down and Clio Barnard's The Arbor.
Proposals are encouraged from UK-based visual artists, filmmakers, writers, composers, theatre makers, choreographers and producers as well as artists working in the digital space. Applications from all levels of artist are welcome as originality of idea is key. If you are interested in applying visit their website for more information.
