The Bunting Harp Collection: A Digital Commission – closing 24 July

Music Network (MN) and The Irish Traditional Music Archive (ITMA) are offering an opportunity for a professional sound or visual artist to create an installation work, using as its inspiration the historically significant harp tunes collected in 1792 by Edward Bunting. Artists are invited to submit proposals outlining their creative response to a range of multimedia digital materials relating to the collection held by MN, ITMA, and Special Collections & Archives, Queen’s University Belfast (QUB).

This is a unique opportunity to create and present new work through the exploration, discovery and creative re-use of archival materials, and to bring this valuable collection to the attention of the wider public.

Value: €10,000 (inclusive of VAT).
Closing date: Wednesday 24th July 2019, 4 pm
