Call for Artworks - Inland Art Festival


Inland Art Festival is seeking applications from artists based in the South West for a key strand in our 2016 programme. We are searching for works by up to 20 artists producing contemporary art across a variety of medias. 

As well as the opportunity to be part of a fully marketed programme, applicants have the chance to be nominated for a Peoples’ Choice residency award, selected by the festival audience from a shortlist created by the opencall panel. Selected artists will be paid an exhibiting fee of £50, in addition the festival will insure works whilst on display and cover postage/courier/transportation to and from Redruth - please see our FAQs on Curator Space for the Ts & Cs.


The Future Project is just that... an exploration of the future! This could be real or imagined, focussed on Redruth or exploring wider scenarios from architecture and environment to family and education; it could even introduce weird and wonderful utopias and alternative worlds.

We are looking for work in any medium which imagines the possible or impossible, introduces new ideas and values, to help us create a myriad of future visions during the festival.


Inland will animate the town of Redruth from 21st -23rd October, bringing diverse communities together. We have an ambitious free programme which showcases internationally acclaimed and emerging regional art. Delivering screenings, performances, interactive installations in unexpected locations and events from family workshops to talks for practitioners.
