Artist Commission: Animating Hexham

Closing date:

Queen's Hall Arts Centre

Queen's Hall Arts Centre is seeking an animator to create the visual narrative for a new song which will be premiered as part of its Animating Hexham Project.

Queen’s Hall commissioned Songwriter Jennie Brewis to create a song for Hexham. Between April and July 2023, she worked in collaboration with field recordists and sound artists on a series of workshops with the people of Hexham and surrounding areas.

Using the voices of local people and the sounds of nature and the environment, It’s Home isn’t it? intersperses reminiscences and personal narratives with found sounds and choral voices to create a song that captures the atmosphere of Hexham.

The commissioned artist will be selected by a panel of representatives from Queen’s Hall, the artist and the local creative community.

Budget £2,000 (to include materials and expenses)

Deadline 3 November 2023

Beaumont Street Hexham NE46 3LS
