Eurovision: Commission for partnership with Ukrainian artists
November 23, 2022 - December 12, 2022
As you may know, in 2023, Liverpool will host the Eurovision Song Contest. The event should be taking place in Ukraine, but the ongoing full-scale invasion of the country means the UK will instead host the competition this year.
This will bring together three distinct cultures – Ukraine, UK and Eurovision – and present them on an extraordinary stage – the city of Liverpool (a UNESCO Creative City of Music). To support this, as host city Liverpool will be delivering a cultural festival in the lead up to the main event with a series of commissions, events and installations which will act as a platform for modern Ukraine – telling a story of an ambitious, progressive country.
Alongside that Liverpool will be marking the power of music as well as the unbridled joy, diversity and expression which Eurovision represents. As part of this, Liverpool is commissioning artwork, with one strand of commissioning specifically designed to bring together Ukrainian and UK based artists and producers to collaborate on creating new projects which offer a platform to tell the story of modern Ukrainian culture.
Artists can come from any discipline, although Liverpool is particularly interested in large scale outdoor works and installations.
Each commission must bring together a Ukrainian artist, creative or collective with a UK counterpart. But Liverpool can support a matching process for Ukrainian nationals based in Ukraine or outside of the UK.
