The call for 'An Idea for a Future London’ is open to all kinds of practitioners [including, but not limited to, artists, designers, architects, planners, creative technologists, filmmakers, writers or social entrepreneurs] and projects.
We want to understand how people are operating, or speculating on how, to create positive change in the city and to support a project which will communicate new ways of working to our visitors and communities.
The Open Call will award the winner a budget and support to deliver a project which will inhabit the Museum of London’s City Gallery between February and April 2018. Alongside the realisation of the winning proposal, we will make public a selected longlist of creative ideas for urban change – a valuable mapping of a shared field of possibility.
The brief is to research and deliver a new project for the City Now City Future season in spring 2018 which engages with a community or range of communities in London and which will propose and test out methodologies for urban change.
We want ideas to be pragmatic and practice-led as well as propositional and speculative, to act as a ‘toolkit’ for change.
The commission will include a research period between September 2017 - February 2018 with the opportunity to collaborate with local communities outside the museum, and then to present a public aspect of the project in the City Gallery at the Museum of London between February - April 2018. The occupation of this space may be through the form of an exhibition, active space, club, screening room, events programme - or something else entirely.
Applicants are invited to submit their proposal via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use this email address to obtain further information or submit any queries.
