Portland Basin Museum International Women's Day 2016 - BME Female Artists/Creators Wanted

12 Feb 2016 - 10:58 by michelle.foster

A project for Portland Basin Museum in Ashton to celebrate International Women’s Day 2016 requires BME female artists and creators to submit work exploring ‘taboo’ subjects; this can include anything from race, religion, identity, immigration, mental health, addiction, domestic abuse etc.

The project hopes this will allow a space for BME women to showcase their work exploring these important issues that are often not discussed and will raise awareness amongst the public. The chosen pieces will be displayed at the museum throughout the month of March.

You can submit as an individual or as a collective.

The deadline for this project is 26 February 2016. The items submitted can range from paintings, posters, banners, zines, mood boards, photography etc. - as long as the items can be displayed, it can be submitted.

The project co-ordinator is also looking for BME women poets/performers willing to read/perform their work on film, again exploring ‘taboo’ subjects and be free to get filmed in either Ashton or Manchester. The deadline for this part of the project is 18 February 2016.
