SKDC’s cultural plans include support for the creative sector and the promotion of those who live in the district and work in the industry.
Councillor Rosemary Trollope-Bellew, the Cabinet Member for Culture and Visitor Economy, said: “Before Covid-19 struck, South Kesteven’s highly-skilled creative industry was vibrant, diverse and successful.
“The sector has been hit hard during the pandemic but celebrating the talent we have right on our doorstep over the coming months will help support its road to recovery.”
Working in collaboration with Stamford-based Art Pop-Up, SKDC wants to shout about the creatives who call this district their home, so, whether you are a painter, potter, writer, dancer, actor or graphic designer you are welcome to submit an application.
SKDC Arts Project Officer Jo Dobbs said: “We want a representative selection of art practices and a good geographical spread. The selected profiles will form part of our outdoor exhibition of SK Creatives which will take place in Stamford town centre during April and May 2021.”
Each profile will include images of work and all submissions, whether chosen or not, will form the beginnings of a directory of the creative sector in South Kesteven.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 19th February. They should be sent to
Submissions should include:
All photos must be 300dpi and of professional quality – well-lit, without shadow, and in focus.
