Galleries, museums and visual arts venues throughout the United Kingdom are invited to submit proposals to host the 2020 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award (ARMA), Artist Commission, worth £15,000.

It is hoped the project will have an outcome such as an exhibition, performance, art commission or public sharing. A further £3,750 will be made available to the host organisation to cover their costs.
Applications are invited both from organisations with experience of working with artists on participatory projects or education and learning programmes, and those with little experience and for whom this would be a good opportunity to develop work in this area.
