Development Commission, Quest Southwest & Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust

As part of its current programme Quest Southwest is piloting a project that to enable artists to create new links and work with specific non-arts organisations to research and develop new ideas for outdoor work.

Proposals are sought from south west artists interested in the second of a series of ‘New Paths’ opportunities working with The Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust Ltd.  We are looking for artists from a wide range of art forms including dance, outdoor performance, sound, music, writing, multimedia and live art to undertake a period of ideas development. Proposals should be made in response to the Brief available on request.

Quest Southwest will broker and support selected artist(s) to work with The Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust Ltd and form a new relationship. Quest will work to gain understanding of the needs of both and explore the benefits and challenges of what it means to look at working together and develop new ideas.  The outcomes will be recorded as a resource to be shared, and an advocacy tool for the sector, in order to create more successful partnerships and more opportunities for outdoor arts work to be presented in the future. 

The artist’s fee will be £2,000 inclusive of VAT for this period of research and development.  A materials budget and travel contribution are available.

The artists brief is available from www.questsouthwest.co.uk or by emailing Project Coordinator Jay Haigh on info@questsouthwest.co.uk

Proposals should be emailed to: info@questsouthwest.co.uk by 9th February 2015

Shortlisted artists will be invited to join Quest Southwest and The Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust Ltd for a further discussion to inform artist selection during the week of 14th February 2015.
