Are you a creative practitioner or collective looking to take up space, share and inspire conversation, or build creativity and connection? We’re inviting artists, producers, performers, musicians, curators to suggest, shape and host a public programme event to take place either in our gallery in Hackney or via our online platforms.

This year is Autograph’s 35th anniversary. As part of our celebrations we are sharing three Open Call opportunities over the course of 12 months, each focusing on a different theme that relate to moments in our history. The theme of this second open call is heritage and culture, celebrating the photography of Bandele ‘Tex’ Ajetunmobi whose work is part of Autograph’s collection.

We will consider submissions for events on all manner of creative issues so long as it speaks to the theme. This might include – but certainly isn’t limited to – launch events, spoken word or performance, in-conversation and Q&A events or creative workshops.

The successful applicant will receive a £600 budget as well as a £400 curatorial fee. The selected event proposal will take place in either April or May 2024.
