Open call for exhibition proposals

Calling artists, curators, designers and makers…

Does your work document or explore folk arts and practices? Are you inspired by folk dance, song, or music and interested in making links between traditional folk arts and contemporary arts practice?

Would you benefit from accessing the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library (VWML) and archives?

We are looking for proposals for exhibitions that make new and exciting links to folk to take place at Cecil Sharp House from March – July 2017 and September 2017 – January 2018.
