For the last four years Belladrum Festival has been supported by Tomatin Distillery. This year, to celebrate Bella’s 10th Birthday, the Distillery has kindly offered to donate up to 30 whisky casks to create a work of art to be displayed at the festival.
Over the previous years, Belladrum has showcased a variety of works by professional installation artists and this year with it being the 10th anniversary, it seemed the perfect opportunity to launch a public call to artists/sculptors/makers/designers to submit ideas/designs for the creation of a news piece of art to be installed at the festival.
They are looking for an artist or a collaboration of artists to design and build an artwork piece using the whisky casks, which will engage, inspire and amaze the public and create a lasting memory. Artists are being asked to register their interest in taking part using the on-line form which can be found here.
The deadline for submissions is 30th April 2013
Belladrum 2013 takes place on the 2nd and 3d of August in the beautiful Highland surroundings of Belladrum Estate, near Beauly in Inverness-shire. The independent festival has built a reputation for its eclectic line-ups, its off beat non-musical entertainments and its all-ages approach. The festival won a VisitScotland Thistle Award in 2009 and is a past winner of the Grassroots Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards, the festival industry’s ‘oscars’.
Advance adult weekend tickets are £95. They include parking and camping, except for campervans and caravans which will be charged £50 per vehicle or £130 to include electrical hook-up.. As in previous years, tickets for children 12 & under are free. Online e-tickets are available from Skiddle.
