Digital Arts Studios Belfast, Northern Ireland


DAS Culture Night Commission 2015

Open Call for proposals for work to be installed at DAS for Culture Night on the 18th September 2015

Digital Arts Studios is commissioning a new work for Culture Night 2015. Since moving to the Cathedral Quarter in 2012, DAS has contributed to Culture Night with installations in the foyer of their premises in Hill Street. This year we are calling for installation proposals from artists working with digital and /or mixed media. With around 30,000 people attending Culture Night each year, it is an excellent opportunity to show your work to a wider audience and to create something experimental in a challenging space! Proposals should respond to the architecture of the foyer space of DAS i.e. factor in the height and depth of the space, the glass front doors, the stairwell etc. Proposals should use the space in an imaginative way to install a work that will be viewable/audible from Hill Street/Gordon Street. There will be no access for the public to the studios and the doors of the premises will remain closed on Culture Night, so the installation can only be experienced from the street.

We will provide a materials budget and a fee of £300. We are open to bold and innovative suggestions! The winning artist’s work will be installed at DAS and unveiled on Culture Night 2015. Artists are welcome to make an appointment to visit DAS to see the foyer space. Proposals should be sent to by Friday 31st July 2015 and should include a list of any equipment or materials that you will need for your proposed installation as well as an expected budget. Please telephone DAS on 02890 312900 if you have any queries. Please also see the Culture Night Toolkit here:
