Creative Individuals Norfolk #2
Posters Pamphlets and Other Paraphernalia
In 2020 Norfolk & Norwich Festival ran our first Creative Individuals Norfolk (CIN) initiative as a direct response to the Covid crisis. This initiative set out to support the professional practice of freelance creative individuals, who were some of the hardest hit in our creative community, and to respond to the powerful sense of collective responsibility which we felt in our communities during this crisis. We supported six creative individuals to work in communities across Norfolk, and details of the CIN #1 projects can be found here.
We are now seeking proposals from creative individuals and communities for CIN #2. This new initiative builds on what we’ve learnt through CIN #1, with an enhanced focus on community engagement, a clearer relationship to outcomes during the Festival, and a stronger critical focus.
Posters Pamphlets and Other Paraphernalia (PPP) is a strand of work for our 250th Festival in 2022. We are interested in the historic role of posters and pamphlets in public discourse and communication. We want to support communities who have ‘something to say’ about the world we live in, and who are interested in working with creative individuals to ‘amplify their voice’ by creating print paraphernalia as a means to reach a wide public audience.
How To Apply
Individuals who act as creative catalysts in the community are invited to make proposals for Posters Pamphlets and Other Paraphernalia, a strand of work for the Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2022. The project supports creative individuals to ‘give voice’ to the community through print paraphernalia.
Norfolk & Norwich Festival expects to award five commissions of £5,000 each.
Deadline for proposals is 12 noon on Monday 26 July 2021.
