Demostage - Open Call for Creative Projects




Demostage Weds 18 May, 3-5pm, The Old Market Assembly
Free


Demostage is an informal, temporary space for new ideas. Open to people who make creative projects of any kind (think theatre, music, games, sound, whatever), the event encourages collaboration, sharing and critical discourse. Presenters show what they’ve been working on. Audiences ask questions and give feedback. It’s not a scratch night. It’s an informal event in a bar, inspired by software developers who meet up, drink and demo the programs they’re working on. Everyone welcome.
Are you working on a creative project? Would you like to borrow the ears of some friendly people to talk about your project, share your ideas and get some feedback?
Demostage is a new, informal event that takes place in a bar with a small stage.
You have 5 minutes to say hello, present your idea and answer questions. There’ll be a compere keeping an eye on the clock. And then at the end there’s time to mingle and talk more about your projects.
If you’re interested in sharing an idea, email Vic Hole vic@mayk.org.uk with a brief description of what you’d like to share.
Demostage is a concept created by Dustin Harvey’s Secret Theatre, who has very kindly open-sourced the idea for us here in Bristol. You can find out more about Secret Theatre here: www.xosecret.org

Open Call for Artists - Visual Artist Brief: Bedminster 20mph

Visual Artist Brief: Bedminster 20mph
Aims and Objectives: To create a permanent public artwork that aims to slow driversspeed by raising awareness of the surrounding area, to show and gain community support for 20mph, to raise overall awareness of the 20mph speed limits and strengthen Bedminster’s identity as a major walking and cycling route that connects the centre and the south of the city. The chosen artwork should enhance a positive local image and identity through high quality, inspiring art.
Context: This project has been co-created between Greater Bedminster Community Partnership (GBCP) and Bristol City Councils ‘Better at 20’. Bristol City Council are providing the funding. The project is being managed by GBCP and coordinated by an Arts Co-ordinator who will support you and be your main point of contact throughout the project.
The 20mph speed limit was introduced in Southville, Bedminster, Windmill Hill and Lawrence Hill in May 2010 as a pilot to the larger roll out of 20mph across Bristol. Six years have passed since the initial engagement work on 20mph in Bedminster.
www.bristol20mph.co.uk provides greater detail on the project, its objectives and scope and the box below gives key points on the aspiration of the project as a whole.

Vision for 20mph streets in 2026

Laughing Children, Greener Streets, Playing in the Street, like when it snows, On- street food growing, more people chatting, Front doors open, More reliable public transport, No formal crossings, On-street bike parking for residents, Local shops, Less stress, Smoother traffic flows, Happy and Healthy, Sense of Community, Fewer Cars, Less Stress 
 
The Brief and Artist Criteria: To design and install a permanent artwork in Bedminster (exact location to TBC) that raises awareness of 20mph and slows drivers down.
This is an open brief with no prescription on art forms considered, however  it will need to be taken into account the relatively tight timescale of this project when selecting the art form most suitable, including time needed to gain permissions from the local authority and other relevant parties.
To ensure that drivers are not distracted, digital art pieces with movement or other non-static art work would not be suitable. 
Through discussion with University of Bristol Experimental Psychology department, we have been informed that the inclusion of the following features have a proven effect on changing speed behaviours: 
-       Spatial frequencies – a repeated pattern that creates visual grating” in the drivers peripheral vision when vehicles travel at over 20mph
-       Depth perception – to create the illusion that the artwork is nearer to the vehicle, as this has been proven to decrease speed
-       An image of a pair of eyes watching the drivers, as poor behaviour in many settings is improved when individuals feel watched

The chosen artist would be able to further develop their ideas through a meeting with UoB to discuss further, dependent on the availability of the lead academic from the dept of psychology.
All final installed artworks will need to comply with health and safety and if the final work is a painted/sprayed wall piece it will need anti-graffiti paint to be applied on top.
The expected lifespan of the artwork would hope to be approx. 25 years (but this can be discussed).
The artist will need to be sensitive to local concerns. Community engagement activities will need to inform/be part of the final design.
The artwork should reflect the character of the location and include 20mph motifs.
Possible themes could include:
-      Active travel – walking & cycling
-      Intergenerational community use of the street
-      Elements of the vision of 20mph streets

A final design for the artwork will need to be presented to and approved by GBCP and ‘Better at 20’ before the artwork is created and installed in the chosen location.

Community Participation:
The project needs to provide opportunities for members of the local community to participate and comment on ideas/designs. Engagement and participation are key to gathering ideas for the final artwork. The artist will decide how to gather these ideas and how to incorporate them in the final design but will need to do this as part of the local community engagement events that the arts coordinator is organising.

Timescale:
The public engagement events will happen in May and one of the sessions will happen during Southville Arts Trail (14th-15th May). The final artwork will need to be installed during UPFEST (23rd -25th July).
