"Artangel let artists do what no one else will. It's as simple as that." Jeremy Deller
Open is a £1 million initiative by Artangel, BBC Radio 4 and Arts Council England for new site-specific commissions across the UK. It's a call for artists working in any media to share proposals for ground-breaking projects that will transform the UK's cultural landscape.
Artangel will visit twelve cities (from 28 Jan - 26 Feb) across the UK for Open Platform events, providing artists with the opportunity to hear more and to talk to Artangel directly about the open invitation to come forward with project proposals by 29 April 2013.
Open in Manchester will be held at Whitworth Art Gallery working in partnership with cultural organisations and networks across the region to spread the word amongst artists of all disciplines.
If you're a visual artist, filmmaker, writer, composer, theatre maker, choreographer, producer or an artist working in the digital space, this is your opportunity to hear about the opportunities Open offers, meet with Artangel's Co-Director James Lingwood and Artangel Producer Seb Emina and special guest (tba) and start to think about what Open could mean to you.
