Creative Places Tuam, led by Create, is delighted to announce a brand-new commission opportunity for collaborative and socially engaged artists and/or arts collective, working at the intersection of art, theory/research and social action/ justice.

We are seeking proposals for a 15 month cooperative commission commencing in September 2021 that engages with and responds to the unique town of Tuam, located north of Galway City in the west of Ireland.

We wish to work with artists and/or an arts collective who are seeking to further explore the potential of the town & hinterlands through collaborative and socially engaged art making practices. Creative Places Tuam is inviting proposals to deliver an engaging project that will embed the successful collective within the diverse communities that make up Tuam. The commission is open to local, national and international arts practitioners or a combination of same.  The collective can be previously established or newly formed for this commission.

All applications must be submitted by 17.00 GMT on Wednesday July 21st 2021. Applications received after this date will not be eligible for assessment. Read further details and the application procedure here.
