The visual arts programme at BE dedicates a two-year cycle to exploring a particular theme and open submissions bi-annually. We see visual arts as an essential tool to inspire alternative answers to socio-political challenges. We believe that art practice must always question the world we live in. We facilitate a working arts laboratory that explores the conjunction of arts, politics and economics in an attempt to uncover and proffer innovative and experimental responses.

Any visual artists from different cultures, backgrounds and practices from UK and Europe can apply.
