Artists are invited to apply for the 2018 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award (ARMA), Artist Commission, hosted by The Turnpike, Leigh, worth £15,000.

The award funds an artist or artists to undertake work with children and young people over approximately 10 weeks, and for the experience to inform the creation of a commissioned artwork accessible to the public. ARMA wasestablished in memory of the artist Alexandra Reinhardt and is supported by the Max Reinhardt Charitable Trust (MRCT).

The successful artist(s) will work with The Turnpike over a 10-week period between February and July 2018, to deliver a programme of after school and weekend engagement workshops for young people in care or those who have recently left the care system. The artist will work closely with The Turnpike’s Learning & Outreach Coordinator, with curatorial support from the Director, Helen Stalker and Exhibition Coordinator, Matt Retallick. The artist(s) will create a semi-permanent or permanent art commission at The Turnpike or in a nearby space accessible to the public, informed by the participatory/education programme. The commission is to be completed by October 2018, for a launch event in November 2018.

This is an exciting opportunity for an artist or artists to undertake a highly respected participatory project and commission which is well supported by project partners, and will be widely promoted, both nationally and internationally.
