The momentum is certainly gathering pace as the biggest music competition draws closer. Ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest, and as host city, Liverpool is planning the Eurovision Festival which will land on Monday 1 May and run until Sunday 14 May.

To support this Culture Liverpool will be delivering a cultural festival in the lead up to the main event with a series of commissions, events and installations, acting as a platform for modern Ukraine – telling a story of an ambitious and progressive country.

Sitting alongside these will be an education and community programme to ensure that our young people and wider communities can engage in the event. As such, we are seeking artists and arts organisation to take part in the following commission opportunities.


Public Art Egg Trail Commission

Culture Liverpool are teaming up with Liverpool ONE to provide a unique opportunity to commission 7 visual artists to work with schools and the Ukrainian community across the Liverpool City Region to design and decorate largescale painted eggs for inclusion in a public art trail.

If you can demonstrate the following then we’d love to hear from you:

  • Have a proven track record of high-quality co-creation with schools and/or communities
  • Can work to the brief provided by Culture Liverpool and within the timescales
  • Have a history of delivering work to a tight deadline
  • Have a proven track record of developing and delivering high quality work suitable for the public realm
  • Have their own Public Liability Insurance of at least £5,000,000

You can find out more information and details on how to apply here.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Sunday 12 February.


Education Resource Pack Commission

Culture Liverpool are looking for an artist/arts organisation to create an education pack for the visual arts strand of our programme which ties in with the Eurovision Song Contest.

The resource pack will have a focus on the Ukrainian and Eastern European tradition of egg painting and will provide cultural information on the tradition and the link to Ukraine/Europe. Called pysanka, these painted eggs are a central part of Ukrainian culture around Easter. The resource needs to be multicultural and focus on the eggs as symbols of new life, new beginnings, fresh start etc. rather than the Christian Festival of Easter so as to be inclusive to all our Liverpool City Region communities.

If you have what it takes to to create an informative and engaging resource pack that appeals to young school children then find out more and apply here.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Sunday 12 February.
