Artists, curators and organisations - Tell us about your projects!

This week we’ve launched a new online questionnaire calling for your contributions to our national mapping of the contemporary art in heritage field. If you’ve been involved in creating, curating or commissioning contemporary art for a heritage site, we want to hear from you!
Your contributions will help us to build an archive and map of contemporary art in heritage practice across the UK. Our focus is on capturing information about the production and presentation of temporary, site-specific artworks that fit within the broad category of visual arts practice (including fine art, craft, lens-based work, installation, performance, sound, digital arts).
We are interested to hear about UK projects located in and responding to a wide range of heritage contexts, broadly defined as: 'a place, locality, natural landscape, settlement area, architectural complex, archaeological site, or standing structure that is recognized and often legally protected as a place of historical and cultural significance.' (International Council on Monuments and Sites, 2008).
If you are or have been involved in a relevant project - as artist, commissioner, curator, or arts organisation - we ask you to complete a short online project questionnaire. This asks for details about the project, where and when it took place, who was involved and how the activity was supported. This first round of our call for contributions is open until 30 April 2018.
