News: Sound Art Commission

CIT & Waterside are seeking to commission a new piece of work from a sound artist to create new audio installation artwork(s) for the venue in Sale, Manchester during our Refract: 18 Festival in summer 2018.

Please send us up to 200 words with an outline of what you wish to create.
