FACT announce artist open-call for criminal justice project
FACT Liverpool is seeking to commission an artist, art collective or design studio with experience of designing participatory learning experiences to create and produce a ‘Knowledge Library’ – the first commissioned artwork as part of the gallery’s Resolution project, a three-year art programme within the criminal justice system in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, HMP Altcourse and HMP Liverpool.
Through deep engagement between artists and participants FACT produce artistic commissions that explore identity and the notion of contemporary citizenship. Art is presented as a platform for voices that are rarely heard to explore their status in society.
The artworks produced through this process are shared with diverse audiences to encourage conversations and understanding of the criminal justice system in collaboration with Criminology researchers.
Resolution emerges from Veterans in Practice, FACT’s long-term creative programme for military veterans and continues to develop the partnership with Reimagining Conflict: Pedagogy, Policy and Arts Group, Liverpool John Moores University.
Submission deadline: Friday 8th February
