Applications for artists to be part of the 2022 Manchester Open Exhibition will open on Wednesday, 16 June.
The first Manchester Open, in 2020 – the most successful exhibition in HOME’s history – saw over 33,000 visitors enjoying 543 artworks by 451 artists. It was the first region-wide exhibition of its type to welcome entries from people of any background and level of experience, including established professionals, new and emerging talent, enthusiastic amateurs and first-time artists.
Submissions will be made via an online web portal on the HOME website, and are open to all, including those who may already identify as artists and those who might not, working in any medium. It is free to submit work for consideration, although HOME encourages donations to support their outreach and engagement programme.
Eligibility: Anyone living or working in Greater Manchester who considers themselves to be an artist, regardless of experience
What you get out of it: Inclusion in one of Manchester’s most popular exhibitions, plus the chance to win a £2,000 bespoke Manchester Open Award.
