Artist Commission: Health and Wellbeing

Published: 18 March 2021

Museums share the commitment to improve the health and social wellbeing of individuals though cultural interventions in innovative, enjoyable and sometimes challenging ways.

We believe that collaborative relationships result in the meaningful delivery of our goals.

Within our Therapeutic Museums strategic objectives, we aim to increase the number of Leicester residents improving their wellbeing through engagement with collections and arts.

As part of the Health and Wellbeing strand of our Arts Council England (ACE) funded National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) activity, an opportunity to develop and deliver an Artist Led Community wellbeing commission is available.

Artist Commission

We are looking to engage a creative practitioner to create an exciting, interactive work, engaging individuals and communities to be installed and displayed in Leicester Museum and Art Gallery.

The theme of this commission is to celebrate Leicester Museums & Galleries collections and memories of Leicester Museum & Art Gallery, linked to past, present and future engagement and the impact on health and wellbeing.

In the Brief for Artist Led Health and Wellbeing Community Engagement Commission you will find all of the details of the commission including information on how to apply.

The deadline for applications is: Friday 26th April 2021
