Brief Description

New Geographies is an Arts Council England funded project to create a new map of the East of England based on personal thoughts, reflections and stories of unexplored or over-looked places, rather than on historic or economical centres. The map forms the basis of 10 major site-specific art commissions across the East of England, to be delivered over the next two years. The first phase of the project invited members of the public to nominate locations for the map, over a three-month nomination process in Summer of 2017. We are now seeking expressions of interest from artists who have experience of working with community engagement and/or in the public realm in response to places or sites. The call is open to artists living and working both nationally and internationally and we are aiming to appoint ten artists to the project.
