Would you be interested in working in partnership with Imperial War Museums (IWM) on a new art commission to explore the impacts of conflict from the First World War to the present day?
The IWM 14-18 NOW Legacy Fund is a national programme of 22 fully-funded, ambitious artist commissions which will see brand new works span the length and breadth of the UK. Building on over 100 years of contemporary art commissioning by IWM, this new initiative continues the vision and reach of 14-18 NOW, the official UK arts programme for the First World War centenary, and has been made possible thanks to the success of Peter Jackson’s critically acclaimed film They Shall Not Grow Old, co-commissioned by IWM and 14-18 NOW.
Alongside the five major partner and two IWM commissions, 15 members from IWM’s War and Conflict Subject Specialist Network will receive smaller grants of £20,000. On 17th May a second phase inviting expressions of interest opened for the seven remaining places in the programme.
The team will be at Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea on Thursday 23rd June 2022 at 1 pm to talk about the programme and how you can get involved.
If you’re unable to make it, the team are also available for online appointments throughout June by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
