Contested Desires is transnational project led in the UK by D6 exploring our shared and contested Colonial heritage and its influence on contemporary culture.
D6 is an established visual arts producer, which for over 28 years has delivered transnational programmes working with extraordinary artists and intrepid partners to create works of art within neighbourhoods and public spaces. Their projects draw threads between communities to reveal the stories that make us who we are.
Contested Desires will engage nine artists (from the UK, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and the Caribbean) to participate in this ambitious and collaborative project from January 2020 until September 2021.
This call is for 2 UK artists from the North of England encompassing the North East, North West and Yorkshire & Humber regions. D6 particularly welcomes applications from artists whose practice and lived experience reflect the themes of Contested Desires.
