FE McWilliam Gallery seeks proposals from artists, designers and researchers who wish to participate in the Linen Lab project. This year-long programme of innovative creative collaboration and engagement will culminate in a gallery exhibition in Autumn 2019.

We hope to inspire a new generation of young people to try out a range of experimental approaches to working with linen, with the support and guidance of artists, designers and researchers. The creative team assigned to the project will be challenged to put local young people at the centre of the activity as they develop their own work for the Linen Lab exhibition. Collaboration, playfulness and experimentation are essential to the success of the engagement activity.

The project is part of Connected, a new audience engagement initiative being delivered across the borough of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon in 2018/19 and is co-funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Local Government Challenge Fund. Linen Lab is offering opportunities to artists in partnership with the Linen Biennale N. Ireland.

Fees: The maximum fee for each successful proposal is £3750, based on a daily rate of £125 per day and a maximum of 30 days’ involvement in the project.
