CALL for proposals from artist, musician, performers and creative folk!

An open call for submissions of proposals to participate in the Inventive Factory is inspired from the model used to select the residency programme at Guest Projects. Guest Projects is Shonibare Studio’s experimental space, which offers the opportunity for artistic practitioners, of any artistic discipline, to have access to a free project space for 1 month.  Based in London’s creative hub of Hackney, it provides an alternative universe and playground for artists. It is a laboratory of ideas; a testing ground for new thoughts and actions.

In the spirit of the Guest Projects ethos- an experimental space that is open to all- we welcome proposals from any artistic discipline, which is based on or inspired by the works in The Novium museum’s collection. This can be done in a number of ways such as film, performance, music, dance, photography, experimental art, fashion.

The Novium museum is a colourful smorgasbord of local history highlighting creative and often eccentric individuals from the past. Areas of the museum will become Inventive Factories with a different creative focus and activity at each area. This will create a mini festival event involving music, performance and art.

Participants and visitors to the event will be encouraged  to create artwork in response to the museum’s collection as well as stories of local individuals.  The objects and artwork that are produced at the event will then be retained as an Alternative Museum collection to be exhibited at the museum for a short period afterwards.

Please submit your proposal via the online form found on  or  on the museum website

Deadline for final proposals – 5pm Thursday 24th September.
