Commission Opportunity for Lancashire based emerging Artist/Designer

Lancashire is bidding for UK City of Culture 2025 as part of a long-term strategic plan for culture in Lancashire. Imagine a county positioning itself as a virtual city, with a bold new vision for culture, commerce and creative communities.

Lancashire 2025 will be for everyone no matter what age, gender, race, sexuality, religion, or education. Diversity and inclusion is at the heart of the vision for Lancashire 2025.

Blaze is undertaking some important youth consultation work for Lancashire 2025’s City of Culture bid. With the aim to find out from young people across the county what would make them choose Lancashire in the future as a place to live, work and create in. 

Blaze is seeking an artist/designer to work with us to:

  • Produce a creative provocation that appeals to young people to gather feedback for the Lancashire 2025 Youth Consultation. 
  • Produce a small amount of visual motifs to be used across project materials including on a survey and Instagram posts. 
  • Produce a creative report using the data Blaze collects from young people, to share the view point of Lancashire’s youth in an engaging, exciting and creative way. This will need to reflect the concepts and ideas from the information Blaze gathers. (This could be a digital publication, a PowerPoint, a film, an animation etc this is up to you)

The creative report will showcase our findings and recommendations for the vision moving forward and will be submitted to the Lancashire 2025 Bid director in September.
