Artists given chance to turn dreams into reality

A handful of artists could win the chance to have their ideas turned into real works of art to be showcased during an innovative festival in Aberdeen, thanks to a new funding initiative.

Organisers of the annual Look Again festival are calling for established and emerging designers from the north-east to apply for support from its Seed Fund.

Up to four artists, with local links, are in line for a share of £2,000 worth of funding.

Their completed work would also form part of the 2017 Look Again event.

Earlier this year, a mirrored pavilion, designed by RGU architecture student Lucy Fisher and a group of final year students, proved one of the festival’s most popular attractions.

Sally Reaper, Look Again director, said: “We’re very excited to be launching our Seed Fund today as it will allow a handful of artists to realise an idea that otherwise might never see the light of day.

“As artists we often have ideas that don’t fit into our normal practice or we dismiss ideas within our practice because we assume they will never happen due to budget, permission or health and safety.

“Whatever the reason, the Seed Fund aims to support artists by providing funding and guidance so that many more great ideas can become visible.

“We hope it will help knock down some of those brick walls local artists and designers come up against every day when trying to take their art projects from initial concept to reality.”

The fund, supported by Aberdeen City Council, is open to artists at any stage in their creative careers.
