The proposed artwork must:

• directly address / use as content themes of current and future global significance
• use / enable visitors to use Virtual Reality as an integral component of the artwork
• be sufficiently realised by 30 June 2020 for documentation to be made and media    material to be completed
• be capable of running, open to the public daily, from 5 September to 8 November      2020, and the costings must reflect this

The written proposal should be in .pdf format and include:

• an overall budget figure for which the project can be realized, and a breakdown to show how the funds will be raised (including those to be provided by Creative Folkestone)
• sufficient detail (eg equipment to be used, location, staffing and training requirements) to be credible, both as regards feasibility and costing
• an outline (themes, names of speakers) for a public programme at a high level of academic achievement and interest
