Terms and Conditions

We, Swan Films, are making a television series for Channel 4 called “Grayson’s Art Club” (the “Series”).  

In this Series for Channel 4, Grayson and Philippa Perry will help bring the nation together through art. Every week, they will host the show from Grayson’s studio, and invite a famous amateur artist to spend time with them creating new works of art. They’ll also meet other creatives, and ordinary people who are using art to help change their lives. Grayson will be asking members of the public to send him their own artworks which they have been making at home, talking to them via video calls and choosing artworks he loves in each episode. And at the end, we hope to display the art created in a public exhibition (the “Exhibition”).

Grayson Perry will send out messages via social media asking for members of the public to participate in the Series by uploading a 90 second video message of themselves (the “Video”) filmed on their mobile phone together with three photos of their artwork (the “Artwork”).  We will then select the Artworks and Videos he wants to consider for inclusion in the Series. If your Video or Artwork is selected one of the producers may then call you to discuss potentially appearing in the Series as a Contributor via video call on your device (the “Contributor”).  If you are selected to be included they will send you a separate contract for your appearance.  

If you want to participate here are some important things you need to know and agree to:

- If you are under 18 you will need a parent/guardian to submit your artwork and provide their phone number so we can speak to them in person.

- We will accept any type of art including paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages, from amateurs and professionals alike.
