Kendal Calling

The Kendal Calling festival has announced a new £10,000 commissioning fund for visual artists, called Beyond Infinity, in partnership with Eden Arts and FutureEverything, and supported by Arts Council England.

The event is calling on established and emerging visual artists for submissions incorporating digital media with an emphasis on sculpture, light projections and installations, in keeping with this year’s festival theme, ‘Kendal Calling goes beyond the stars’.

Six artists will be commissioned to show their work at this year’s Kendal Calling, one receiving £5000 and five others getting £1000 each.

Kendal Calling Director Ben Robinson told CMU: “We are thrilled to announce this new opportunity for visual artists to bring work to the festival. Working with Arts Council England, Eden Arts and FutureEverything will add a whole new dimension to this year’s event”.

Artists can submit their work here. This year’s Kendal Calling takes place from 1-3 Aug.
