Leeds West Indian Carnival celebrates its 50th Birthday in 2017 and everyone is invited to the party!
In recognition of this remarkable achievement Leeds Inspired and Leeds West Indian Carnival are working together to produce a city-wide participation project that will celebrate the creativity of carnival costume artists and spread word of the upcoming anniversary.
We are looking to commission five artists to create stunning new carnival costume headpieces. The commissioned headpieces will tour the city where people of all ages will be invited to have a portrait photograph taken whilst wearing one of the headpieces. Each headpiece will be themed to represent the key stages of the journey of Leeds West Indian Carnival from the Caribbean to Leeds.
If you are a carnival artist or designer and would like to be considered for this commission you'll find information on how to apply can be found in the two links below.
If you have any questions about the commission please don’t hesitate to get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0113 3786009
Closing date - Monday 14 November 2016
