The Ballad of Peckham Rye is inviting artists to engage with ideas of ecology and sustainable food production, growing and cultivating plants, particularly within an urban environment. They are interested to hear ideas you might have for one-off workshop sessions and/or small-scale artistic interventions that could relate to activities aiming to; share practical skills; engage people through discussion; explore opportunities for co-production; make and/or present new work within this specific context.
The project will offer 3 early-career artists a fee of £200 (plus travel expenses up to £50 and materials agreed in advance). We envisage a session will last between 1-2 hours and will be delivered on a date to be specified in October/November 2021. TBOPR and AFRIL will support artists with the planning and delivery of their projects.

This new fund offers awards of £2,000 for two early-career practitioners (artists, curators and producers) to connect, experiment, learn from each other and share ideas.

Your work together can happen either in-person or remotely, and you can work together for some or all of the time.
