Farnham Maltings with Essex Cultural Diversity Project are looking for cultural practitioners to create work in three Buckinghamshire libraries, with a commission of £10,000.
This forms part of a three-year project funded by the Rothschild Foundation, to support and grow confident cultural communities in Buckinghamshire.
For this particular commission, we are looking for a creative practitioner(s) to work with and within three sites: High Wycombe, Castlefield and Micklefield Libraries. We are inviting inspiring project proposals from all creative practitioners, including artists, poets, writers, dancers, musicians and theatre groups, that respond to the following aims:
· To improve equality of access to cultural activities and opportunities in Buckinghamshire via libraries
· To provide opportunities for creative practitioners from diverse backgrounds
· To engage and involve local communities, removing barriers to participation in the arts
The project should be bold, distinctive, relevant and excellent. It should also include an element of liveness such as a performance and/or a final exhibition event, and it should create a legacy for the libraries, their users and the communities they serve.
This is the second of a series of three commissions taking place in Buckinghamshire from 2019 to 2022. For more information about Tom Cross’ commission in Aylesbury Library and from ECDPs wider programme, visit https://essexcdp.com/commissions/.

Deadline for proposals: Wednesday 16 September.
