Artists taking the lead

Artists taking the lead

Closing date for applications: 29 May

Arts Council England are offering a series of commissions to showcase the best of our nation’s creativity, to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games across the UK.

They are seeking original ideas for projects in any artform, led by artists (from individuals to collectives or organisations). Projects which will be completed by June 2012, but also show a legacy for artists and communities beyond 2012.

Akram Khan: ‘It’s vital, we as a nation, value expression through the arts, the way it puts our lives into context and enables us to mark moments in history - such as the Olympics - celebrate achievement and opportunity and provide touch points for future generations.

This project is being run as an online application process.
