Job:  Wolverhampton Arts & Museums Service is seeking to celebrate the rich industrial heritage of the Black Country with a new range of limited edition, contemporary products developed by designers / makers, inspired by the historic local collections. In the first round of this project, there are three commissions available, working to the strengths of: Wolverhampton Arts and Museums Service; Dudley Museum Service; and Walsall Museum Service. Each commissioned maker will design and produce (either themselves or in collaboration with a manufacturer) a limited edition run of between 50 to 300 items. Each product will retail between £10 and £50 and will be sold in museum, gallery and heritage centre shops run by the three local authorities. They also aim to use the Culture Label website to achieve global sales. There is a one off fee of £5,000 for each commission. This covers the design fee and production of the limited edition run, (batch size to be decided prior to contract agreement) as well as travel to the venues for meetings and to view the collection.

The 2012 London Olympics has today opened its Unlimited: Celebrating disability art and culture programme to entries. This £1.5m arts programme aims to commission… “disabled and deaf artists, and disabled and deaf-led arts organisations, who wish to develop their work”.

A variety of other official cultural projects around the 2012 London Olympics are also unveiled today, but it seems that Unlimited is one of the few currently inviting applications.
