Doncaster Creates, the program focused on people led regeneration through great art, have today (June 4) launched an open call to give creative people from across the borough a chance to bid for money.

Mike Stubbs, creative director at Doncaster Creates said: “We are looking forward to hearing from artists currently living in Doncaster who are keen to explore these key ideas. “We are keen to fund projects that will look at the new reality, as an opportunity to create new balance, continue to view the world through fresh eyes and ‘re-set’ how we do things.”

Doncaster Creates art project.

Doncaster Creates welcomes proposals that are a ‘remix’ of existing materials, places or situations, re-imagines our place in the world, give voice, vision or space to previously unheard or underrepresented viewpoints such as, young people, those who might not normally take part in arts or creative activities and demonstrate how can we build a new sustainable model.

"We want this to be an opportunity to shine a spotlight on hidden skills that are often undervalued – our local creative sector plays a critical role in Doncaster life.

“The work that we commission will contribute to our Doncaster Re-mix program later in the year.

“This is a chance for people in the town to think about how they can help to shape the future.”

The deadline for proposals is July 2, 2020.
