Home for Waifs and Strays have announced a new open call in partnership with disability led arts organisation DASH and The Herbert Museum & Art Gallery in Coventry. Live Screen will produce a new platform for 4 artists who find it difficult to leave their homes because of a physical/mental impairment or disability.


The commissioned pieces will be live streamed from the artists’ homes and projected onto a large screen at the Herbert Museum & Art Gallery on 16 March 2018.

Each selected artist will receive mentoring from an individual who has experience working in the arts and with disabled artists. The mentors are consultant Mandy Fowler, artist Tanya Rabbe-Webber, artist and producer Ben Fredericks and New Art West Midlands Director Craig Ashley.

Each artist will also receive a fee of £1000 plus help towards accessibility costs and materials.

More detail on the project and application process can be found here.

Applications close at midnight on 10 December 2017.
