Following the successful WRITE: MUSE creative writing workshops, there is an opportunity for six visual artists based in Leicestershire to do five days paid collaborative work with a writer, and to have the resulting work displayed in a gallery space in Leicestershire early in 2007.
Applications should be received by the 25th August. Interviews will be held on the 6th September, and successful candidates will be asked to attend an initial writer/artist meeting on the evening of 19th September.
The collaboration will take place between September and 8th December, to be organised by each pair. Gallery exhibitions, to be installed by the pairs, will start in January 2007.
In addition, a pack of six postcards, featuring work by each of the six pairs, publicising the project, the collaboration and the exhibitions, will be produced and distributed regionally from December onwards.
