1215.today is a major LSFM/Arts Council project that commemorates 800 years of the Magna Carta with an online platform that gives young people (aged 14-24) a space to debate and create. Organisers said: We are inviting a filmmaker, animator or artist / maker / practitioner working with moving image to work with us in the development of a new artistic digital commission. Artists do not need to have previous experience in working online as they will be supported through the process by expert creative technologists. Artists will need to be open to new ways of working and welcome critical conversation and collaboration, particularly with young people. By looking, listening and talking about societal and individual rights explored across the breadth of art forms, we aim to agitate and engage young people to create work about big issues. Here are the 1215Today Film Commission application details. Deadline is 8th May 2016. Read more on the 1215.today webpage about the commissioning process, £10k fee offered to the artist and the terms.Continue reading →

15 June 2015 is the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. There are four original documents of Magna Carta, which were sealed by King John in 1215, and one is in LINCOLN. ‘The Great Charter’ agreed the rule of law applied to all and recognised civil liberties. Visit Lincoln said the city is ‘the only place in the world where you can find an original copy of Magna Carta together with the Charter of the Forest … The two charters belong to Lincoln Cathedral and are housed in Lincoln Castle.’ A new visitor centre at the castle, events and public lectures will celebrate Lincoln Cathedral’s Magna Carta.
