The Crafts Council and Birmingham City University (BCU) are seeking a freelance creative producer to develop an exhibition of five newly commissioned works from Black and Asian female makers. The exhibition will take place in the Crafts Council Gallery (Islington, London) and will open in November 2021 and run through to January 2022.
The commissions are one of the outputs of a two-year research project, Supporting Craft Expertise, by Dr Karen Patel, of BCU, that the Crafts Council have supported. It has examined the experiences of ethnically diverse women in the craft sector, including the specific challenges they face.
As part of the project, Dr Patel commissioned 5 makers to produce new work that gave creative expression to the challenges that they face in the sector.
Using these 5 works as a starting point, we would like a creative producer to develop an exhibition in the Crafts Council Gallery.
