Location: Devon

Contract: Part time 

As one of six new library Arts Council England funded National Portfolio Organisations (NPO), Libraries Unlimited is working to bring an innovative programme of arts and culture to their libraries across Devon.

Their new programme Discover. Create. Explore looks to use new technologies to connect people with great culture and art of all types. For this first year  they will be focusing on libraries in Exeter, Barnstaple and Bideford.

Tech Tales

Libraries Unlimited have some incredible collections of rare books and are looking for creative technologists and artists, authors and historians to interpret and respond to them.

They are looking to commission 3 ‘small footprint, digital artworks’ that embrace the concept of the library as a private/public space. They want these pieces to be small enough to be able to tour their network of libraries, but involving enough that people can explore and play with them in their own time.

They have 3 x £3000 grants to allow for commissions from pairings of:

An Author and a Creative Technologist

A Historical writer/ Historian and a Creative Technologist

A Visual Artist and a Creative Technologist

They’re interested in collaboration, and are as open to submissions of interest from working partnerships as highly skilled open-minded individuals.

Closing date: 11th October 2018, 9 am. 

Further essential information, including full artist briefs and application processes can be found at the Libraries Unlimited website.
