Each year Castlefield Gallery Associates have the opportunity to submit proposals for an exhibition that will form part of the gallery’s programme. Associates can apply to exhibit as a solo artist, a member of a group/collective, or to curate an exhibition project. Proposals may also include related activities such as talks, tours and workshops. In the case of group projects, at least one participating creative must be a Castlefield Gallery Associate. Castlefield Gallery offers a budget of up to £2,000 as well as curatorial guidance and technical support to bring the proposed project to fruition.
We look for timely and ambitious proposals which enable those involved to significantly develop their practice and profile. We work with a guest selector to help us decide upon the proposal to take forward for an exhibition.
