Open House: A Short Documentary Commission

The Stove Network invites proposals to produce a short film that will document a period of 4-6 months that will include the final transformation of 100 High Street (The Stove Building) and associated works by artists leading up to the grand opening of the building in April/May 2015.

The Stove Network is seeking an artist/filmmaker who can bring their own creative approach to the commission and shape the project to reflect their own interests and those of the community of Dumfries. The Stove Network is focused on engaging the local community through socially engaged public art practice and it is envisaged that this commission would equally engage the community of Dumfries as part of the creative process.

  1. Funding of £4000 (including VAT, travel and subsistence) is available for this commission.
  2. The deadline for proposals is 12 noon on Mon 12th Jan 2015.
  3. Applicants must be available for interview on Wed 14th Jan 2015 and will be informed that day if they have been awarded the commission.
  4. The work is to be completed by July 1st 2015.

This film commission aims to provide a creative opportunity to document a critical period in the development of The Stove Network as an organisation and a significant cultural development within the town center of Dumfries and the community it serves.

This commission is funded by Creative Scotland through a ‘Public Art Sited’ award to The Stove Network to fund parts of their year-long series of public art events in Dumfries titled ‘The Stove@TheStove’.
