British Council > DICE Artist Commission

The British Council are looking to commission six artists to illustrate a text about their DICE (Developing Inclusive and Creative Communities) programme.

The text, written by Professor JP Singh, is an academic review of international development and cultural relations. The aim of the commissions is to bring Professor Singh’s work to life visually for readers interested in the role of, and connections between, arts, entrepreneurship, the Sustainable Development Goals, cultural relations, and international development.

The British Council intend to select one artist from each of the following countries to undertake the commission: Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, South Africa and the UK. Artists can be working in illustration, painting, graphic design, animation, poetry, graphic novel, comic strips, etc.

The commissioned artists should be able to create and deliver in February – March 2021. The budget available for each artist’s commission is £450 – £2,500. This includes the time spent in the briefing session, two rounds of artistic submissions and the cost of materials.

Deadline: 25 January 2021
