We are seeking applications that explore the innovative use of any of the arts for the built environment. See here for more details.
This includes contemporary and heritage arts, crafts and design in any genre, and applies to public or private space. Projects may relate to designing, making, commissioning, access, education or commercial uses, and we particularly encourage applications from practitioners in these areas, including architects.
Artists and makers who do not wish to apply in this category are eligible to apply across all other categories if their project fits them – please see this page for more information.
Our general criteria for arts applications are as follows:
- Any application identifying itself as an arts project must have a significant element of tangible arts practice. We are particularly keen to hear from people who are practitioners, in any art form.
- We look for a public benefit in all of our Fellowships. Any application identifying itself as an arts project should demonstrate how it will have a public benefit wider than advancing the applicant’s personal artistic practice.
- In ‘artists and makers’ we include all art forms, whether visual, literary, musical, performance, design, crafts or other.

The Cornwall Design Review Panel is a partnership between Cornwall Council and the Architecture Centre, Devon and Cornwall. Following three successful years in its re-constituted form, the membership of the Panel (CDRP) is being refreshed. As a consequence, we are seeking to recruit a limited number of new individuals to our multi-disciplinary pool of expertise – from which those attending each panel meeting are drawn.
We are looking for lively and intelligent practitioners who are confident communicators and can demonstrate a good working knowledge of design theory, policy and practice in relation to development projects. They should be able to demonstrate an ability to discuss, analyse, appreciate and promote good design in a critical but constructive manner. This may be evidenced through project work that they have undertaken or other related activity such as teaching, consultancy or, indeed, previous design review experience. We hope to attract diverse applicants of all ages and backgrounds.
Applicants should compose a brief CV together with a covering letter that clearly sets out their motivation and interest in this opportunity and explains the qualities that they believe they can particularly bring to the panel. These should be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If prospective applicants have any particular questions prior to submitting, then Mark Pearson can be contacted by email or on mobile number 07969 327525, otherwise we look forward to receiving submissions by the strict deadline of noon on Friday 31st May 2019.
