Birmingham and West Midlands-based artists are being invited to propose artworks celebrating the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Four £25,000 commissions will create works based on four of the Games’ sporting events: Swimming and Para Swimming, Athletics and Para Athletics, Basketball 3x3 and Wheelchair Basketball 3x3 and Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls.
The initiative is being funded by Birmingham 2022 Cultural Programme, which will host a cultural festival in the city from March to August next year.
“From podcasts and poetry to art installations and animation, we want to hear from artists who can show us how inspired they are by The Games,” said Birmingham 2022 Culture and Live Sites Executive Producer Raidene Carter.
The deadline for proposals is 14 September.
