We are very excited to be collaborating with Unlimited in 2019 on a Main Research and Development Award to take place within the Forest of Dean.
Unlimited is an arts commissioning programme that enables new work by disabled artists to reach UK and international audiences.
The award supported by the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust and Unlimited is for a research and development project that explores the potential of the forest as a host for contemporary art, with a particular focus on sculpture. One of the key ambitions within our program is to develop learning opportunities for audiences likely to experience exclusion from the arts and natural environment.
Projects wishing to be considered for our particular research and development award will also need to meet the following criteria:
- relate to the natural environment and the Forest of Dean’s unique location, and is suitable for sharing in an outdoor context.
- outcomes will be aimed at a wide ranging audience.
- demonstrate a willingness to work with a range of forest-related organisations (i.e Forestry Commission England) and other local partners to help shape the work.
- engage with the audience of the Sculpture Trust and enable their learning about contemporary art.
