Frequently asked questions

These are some frequently asked questions and their answers.

How can I apply?

You can apply by filling out the application form on the Art 50 website before the deadline.

Do I need to live in the UK to apply?

Yes, you need to have been living in the UK for at least six months prior to your application.  However you do not need to have a British passport to apply.

Are you looking for TV programmes, or arts projects, or both?   

We are looking for ideas for arts projects of all kinds.  We will then commission our partner production company, Storyvault Films, to film documentaries about some of these projects.

What is the criteria for applying?

The judges are looking for ideas that:

  • Engage rather than lecture
  • Relate to suburbs and rural communities as well as towns and cities.
  • Allow us to hear and understand many points of view. 
  • Help us to understand how we’ve got here.
  • Taken together, represent a diversity of opinion
  • Include new voices as well as established artists
  • Make a splash, or leave a lasting legacy – or both!

What will happen after I’ve submitted my idea?  

All ideas submitted will be read. Shortlisted ideas will then be considered by the judging panel. If your idea is of interest to the panel, our project manager will be in touch to discuss the idea in greater detail and talk through the logistics. Those who have applied for the current application round will be informed of the success of their project or not in April 2018

Who will own my work?

You will own your work. 
 

What will happen to the artworks after the project is over?

You will always own your work.

Which arts groups will be involved?

We are looking for applications from arts organisations, individual artists (amateur or professional) and schools across the UK.

The Barbican, Sage Gateshead and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art are on board as partner organisations. They will be hosting a festival of selected Art 50 commissions as well as being on the judging panel.  Separately, Sky Arts is commissioning them to produce some new work.

What is the closing date?

Round 2 of Art 50 closed in January. Applicants will be informed as to whether they were successful or not in April 2018.

School Britannia is open until February 12th 2018

Should I take into account how my idea could be a TV show?

Don’t worry about whether your idea could make a good TV show; that’s our job.  This is not part of the criteria for judging.  We are commissioning many more ideas than we can reflect on TV.

How are the Barbican, Sage and BALTIC involved?

As Art 50 partners the Barbican, Sage Gateshead and BALTIC are on the judging panel.  They will also be hosting a weekend festival of selected works from Art 50 later in the project and have been commissioned to produce work for Art 50 outside of the commissioning rounds.

Who will the judges be? 

Representatives from Sky, Storyvault, the Barbican, Sage Gateshead / BALTIC and two guest judges.

How will the guest judges be selected?

The guest judges will be members of the arts world with knowledge and expertise of a wide range of practice to offer complimentary expertise to the panel.

For Round 1 they were Roger Daltrey, Vick Hope, Munira Mirza and Kenneth Tharp.

I’m not used to managing a budget – does that matter?

We will need to be satisfied that you will be able to keep within your allocated funding and spend your money wisely.  We can provide support in doing this if you have limited experience of budget management.

I have an idea which already has some funding. Can Art 50 help as a co-commission?

We are happy to consider co-commissions and would welcome the opportunity to help fund projects that have themes that are compatible with the Art 50 criteria.
