Olympic opportunities

Two opportunities have recently been announced for artists and creative companies who want to get involved in the cultural side of the London Olympics. Here are pointers to them – click through to the relevant websites to get all the details and to judge if they’re relevant for you:


Inside/Out – the Olympic Delivery Authority, LDA and ACE want to hear from ‘experienced arts organisations or curator/producers’ to put together several strategic artist-led temporary commissions/ projects around the edges of the Olympic Park. See http://www.london2012.com/index.php


Meanwhile, the Arts Council is calling for ‘original ideas for projects in any art form, led by artists (from individuals to collectives or organisations)’ that reflect and are inspired by the locations where they will take place. Check for full details at http://www.artiststakingthelead.org.uk/
