Online event

PLEASE NOTE: This event is exclusively for STEAMhouse Create Programme members.


This lunchtime session is led by Marie-Anne McQuay, curator and incoming Director of Projects at Arts&Heritage.

Arts&Heritage works across the UK to forge collaborations between contemporary artists and heritage organisations. A&H projects create new perspectives and bring to life the narratives of histories, people and place. Recent commissions in 2022 include Hetain Patel working at Cromford Mills, Matlock and Enam Gbewonyo making new work at God’s House Tower, Southampton.

Marie-Anne McQuay will introduce the work of Arts&Heritage and give an overview of Heritage commissioning processes. This will include a guide to funding, what opportunities to look out for and how to research & pitch a project proposal. There will be opportunity to discuss experiences and ask questions.
