For the second year in a row, LAAF and OUTPUT gallery are partnering to put on an exhibition by an Arab artist that is from or based in Merseyside. The artist will receive a payment of £300, plus a further £200 to cover materials.

We are inviting applications from people producing visual arts, performance, music, film or any other media. We are looking for a strong and creative art practice that we can platform at this year’s festival in a solo exhibition at OUTPUT gallery from July 9-26. You do not have to class yourself as a ‘professional artist’ or be working in the arts to apply, everybody is welcome.

Founded in 1998, LAAF is a registered charity delivering arts and community programmes. It aims to increase appreciation and awareness of Arab culture and arts at a local, national and international level.

OUTPUT gallery was established in April 2018 and works exclusively with creatives from or based in Merseyside. It aims to support the development, mobility, and visibility of the local art scene from its base at 32 Seel St in Liverpool City Centre.

To apply for this role, please email [email protected] with:

  • Your name
  • Confirmation that you are from or based in Merseyside and also from or have heritage in an Arab country
  • A short description of what you make and why
  • Any images/video/audio of the work you are submitting is useful so we have a good sense of your work
  • Contact details including email and phone number so we can contact you

OUTPUT gallery will support the artist in curation and install.

Deadline for applications is midnight on Friday 10 April. Please check out outputgallery.com/info for full accessibility information and get in touch if you have any queries. The £500 is a fixed fee and unfortunately there is no extra budget to cover the work of a PA, our apologies.
