Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK


Graft are a curatorial collective based in the Midlands who are looking to find a space for up and coming and newly established artists. On 9th December they launch ARC, a new night at The Vaults in the Jewellery Quarter.

The Vaults is a unique Victorian building, now a bar and restaurant. In its past life it has been a shipping house, wire works, a brewery and is rumoured to have been used as a workhouse and holding prison.

For the launch they are seeking proposals from newly estabished artists working in experimental performance, sound and video in response to The Vaults. Submissions should include an artist CV and background statement, a short outline of the work, relevent supporting material (images, recordings) and speculative technical requirements and equipment needs. For more information and to send submissions please email arc.birmingham[at]googlemail.com by 12 noon on Monday 9th November. Selected artists will be notified in the following days.

I look forward to hearing more about Graft and ARC nearer the time. Get those proposals in!
