Jerwood Open Forest Commission

Jerwood Visual Arts (JVA) and Forestry Commission England are delighted to announce Jerwood Open Forest, an exceptional opportunity for visual artists to propose ideas for a major new £30,000 commission to be realised anywhere within England's Public Forest Estate.

There is no brief. The forests are open for artists' ideas. This is a call for bold, broad-thinking proposals that explore the potential of forests as sites for art, both in and about the environment. Proposals can be for work in any discipline or medium, temporary or permanent, site-specific or for touring to more than one location.

The selection panel will include leading practitioners and project partners:

Michaela Crimmin Co-founder, Culture+Conflict
Tania Kovats Artist
Shonagh Manson Director, Jerwood Charitable Foundation
Hayley Skipper Curator of Arts Development, Forestry Commission England

Jerwood Open Forest is open for applications. Entry is by online application and artists must be resident in the UK and within fifteen years of graduating from their undergraduate degree or starting their career as an artist.

Closing date for entries: Tue 28 May 2013, 5pm

For further information and to enter please visit the Jerwood Open Forest website.
