Are you a local artist or performer in Wandsworth? We want your creative ideas for Battersea and Nine Elms this year!
Latest! So that nobody misses the opportunity to enter, we’ve re-opened the call-out for creative and cultural proposals for our Make Art in Battersea and Nine Elms programme.
We know just how busy this time of year can be, so you now have until Thursday 18 May to send in your entries. The pitching and selection community event will now be held on Thursday 25 May.
If you are an artist or creative performer and would like to deliver your art in Battersea and Nine Elms, we’d love to hear from you.
This year we’d like your ideas to focus on the theme of ‘Grow and Flourish’. All ideas are welcome, from visual arts to dance and anything in between! Whether you’re a budding artist or seasoned pro, we want artists with any level of experience to apply for a commission.
We’re looking for imaginative ideas in any form of art or creative media such as photography, dance, music, literature, visual arts, digital, crafts, you name it!
If you live, work or study in the borough of Wandsworth, submit an idea and it could be brought to life in 2023. Check the submission guidance below and send us your proposal by midnight on Thursday 18 May.
Selected projects will receive £3,000 and some producing support, although we expect artists to be responsible for delivering their projects and building their audiences themselves.
So if you have an idea and would like to chat it through, get in touch with the Nine Elms Arts and Events Manager. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Make Art query’ in the subject line.
Don’t forget to submit your idea by the new date of Thursday 18 May 2023. Scroll down to find out more and enter!
We will invite all eligible artists to be present at the selection event on Thursday 25 May, but you don’t need to be an artist to come along and help to select the winning commissions.
We want people who live and work in the local area to choose the art they want to see.
Be a part of the decision-making process at the Make Art In Nine Elms event at the ROSE Community Clubroom on the evening of Thursday 25 May, where you can hear all the creative ideas and have great conversations about each project.

A cross-section of members of the local community will meet during the evening of Thursday 25 May for the Make Art in Nine Elms selection event at the ROSE Community Clubroom on Ascalon Street, SW8.
Each shortlisted project will be discussed and considered whether it fits the criteria to be a Nine Elms arts commission.
The selection criteria will use these five principles:
People present in the room will then vote for their favourite projects. The five projects with the most votes will be selected and awarded the £3,000 commission to Make Art in Battersea and Nine Elms!
