The Baron Ash Project Commission
Packwood, Warwickshire would like to work with a visual artist to explore and present a new way of looking at and thinking about Graham Baron Ash, who restored Packwood house and collected textiles and furniture. They are inviting artists to come to Packwood to meet the team and find out more about the project in an informal way. Following this they will invite a number of artists to send in an Expression of Interest proposal, for which they will offer £300. The successful artist will be chosen by a panel of National Trust staff and volunteers and a contemporary curator. The selected artist will receive a fee of £20,000, which includes research & development, production costs, transport, subsistence and any sub-contracting of specialist support. The overall budget includes further costs for marketing, interpretation, events, launches, volunteer development, partners and proposal costs.
