DEADLINE: Sunday 4th October
On Saturday 21st November, Macclesfield will (virtually) switch on the town’s Christmas tree which will sit proudly, as always, in Market Place – the heart of Macclesfield town centre.
This year, we want to transform our Christmas tree into an eye-catching, inspirational symbol of hope, after what has been for many of us, a difficult year.
We’d like to commission an artist, designer or artist collective, to create a light artwork which re-interprets, responds to and combines with the traditional lights of the tree in a new and exciting way, one which captures the themes of commemoration, contemplation and celebration.
This commission will be for £3,000 including artist time, expenses, materials and all tech requirements.

Please send your submission to email@example.com by Sunday 4th October. We look forward to receiving them.
We’re calling for submissions from artists and designers to respond to the town’s Christmas tree with a light artwork that celebrates and commemorates.
