Blueprint100 Disrupters Fund

Calling all creative disrupters!!! Blueprint100 are offering five £200 commissions (inclusive of fees and costs) with the support of The Hunter Foundation to stage artistic interventions in our local community.

Interventions can take on any creative form, live performance, installation, pop-up activity and beyond, as they long as they take place in Dumfries and provide some form of commentary on our town centre and its future use.

Amy Whiten, acclaimed street and community artist for Recoat, will host our Melting Pot session on Tuesday the 28th to explore ideas and street art techniques. Interested applicants are encouraged to attend.

Recipients of the commissions are encouraged to make use of ‘The Melting Pot’; blueprint100’s weekly drop-in workshop space that takes place in The Stove Café every Tuesday from 18:00 to 20:00 during the commissioning periods. We hope this can become a working space for fellow disrupters and enthusiasts and open up conversation around themes and ideas with others.

To apply, please send a C.V., alongside a letter of interest (200-300 words) including any initial ideas or provocations you have for the commission to by midday (12:00) on Friday the 31st of August.

We would like to encourage anyone who has a strong interest in this to apply regardless of previous experience or area of expertise.
