Call for Artistic Proposals

Bristol Music Trust/Colston Hall seeks an artist or artists to help us devise, create and run a community-based project with an artistic output to explore Bristol’s relationship with the name Colston and Bristol Music Trust’s position within the debate.

This work would have two strands:

  • Exploring responses, issues and future actions around the name Colston in the city and around Colston Hall’s name change and;
  • Working with communities to create a reciprocal dialogue about the role of the Hall in the community and what an inclusive concert hall should look like

Proposals should be received received by Friday 13th October 2017
Interviews will take place week commencing 30th October 2017

To find out more about this artistic opportunity, please read the briefing document below.
