Wirksworth is home to Wirksworth Festival, which over the past two years has concentrated on developing its contemporary visual arts programme, and aspires to become a leading rural Festival of contemporary art in the UK.

They are seeking proposals for new and existing work for their curated programme for 2011, and for the Film & Video Salon 2011. They are interested in site-responsive, site-specific and context-specific work addressing the ‘situation’ of Wirksworth, and in the intersection of Art and Architecture.
