Sick! Festival 2023

Deadline: February 8th, 2023


SICK! is looking for an Artist/s to develop a new piece of work that is rooted in the wider experience of people and communities of Moston, Harpurhey and Charlestown.

SICK! Festival has a commissioning fund of £8,000 available for an early to mid-career artist/s from Greater Manchester to respond to what is SAFE!

· What does it mean to feel safe today?

· What makes us feel safe and not so safe?

· What can be the catalyst for fear to manifest and negatively impact people’s lives?


The project needs to draw on substantial research and work with partners from community-based organisations, healthcare providers, charities, or academic researchers.

SICK! is looking for a project that is a creative public space intervention within the community that employs different forms, processes, and types of engagement with audiences.

The team is looking for artists whose work crosses boundaries between performance, visual art, literature, film, music, and digital practices. It is open to proposals from artists working in a wide range of artforms.

Deadline: 8th Feb
