How developed does my idea need to be?

At the proposal stage, we’re not expecting a fully formed idea with worked up drawings, rather a strong creative idea and some interesting starting points (inspired by the commission brief), along with some thoughts about who the participants might be and how you will engage them.

Please also read the FAQs re the budget and timeline, to get an idea of much detail we need for these areas, and to avoid spending more time than you need to on these sections.

We’d like to see enough information to help the panel visualise what your project, participant events/workshops and possibly final artwork might look like, but don’t nail it down too much… think about providing a good solid structure for the project, but leaving room for the ‘voice’ of the participant to shape the work.
