Call for Submissions Shout It From The Rooftop!

Ugly DuckLondon, England, United Kingdom

NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: Open Until Filled – Ugly Duck revitalises underused space. We find empty and underused spaces and open them up for a range of creative uses. We run projects which animate and connect people to public spaces.

We are seeking sculptors to exhibit on our rooftop to an estimated 2 million people.

Since this first project we have run 2 more rooftop projects; Survi-ville in partnership with PUG, which looked at how architecture can address the issue of climate change, and AROOO on the roof, which provoked people to think about the housing crisis in London.

We are looking for a new roof project, which will provide a platform for an important social or environmental issue. Ugly Duck will support in the delivery of this project, helping to seek funding, promote the piece and manage the project. The main audience will be going past on a train, so the sculpture needs to be large and bold to attract passing commuters and rail passengers.

This will be a semi-permanent project, able to live outdoors for at least 3 months, maybe more.

If you’re interested in submitting an idea for this project please contact Rosie on rosie@uglyduck.org.uk.

We are particularly interested in supporting work which: challenges the status quo, gets to the heart of a matter, advocates for grassroots change, engages spectators in a new way.
