One to One project:
We are looking for two artists who have experience of working with people with autism, for a new Integrated Personal Commissioning pilot project delivering 1-1 sessions funded through an individual’s personal budget.
Firstly, we are looking for a visual artist who has a keen understanding of, and experience in, graphic art and comic-book style illustration. Secondly, we are looking for a drama practitioner to work alongside an individual with the aim of creating an on-going group in the future.
Both clients are based in the Radstock/Midsomer Norton area where we would imagine meetings would take place, and could start immediately.
Found, Forgotten and Forbidden project:
As part of our new young people’s project, The Radstock Arts project, we are looking for an experienced theatre practitioner to lead on one of its elements.
We will be working with young people’s groups and other individuals, to create an ensemble that will devise, create and perform a unique, innovative and highly engaging piece of outdoor/promenade theatre, with engagement and participation at the heart of the project, and a focus on young people’s wellbeing a priority.
Young people will research, probe, explore and investigate the forgotten, found and forbidden areas, people, stories and myths from Radstock. From the mining history to the architecture, the importance of the railway line and Roman history, to the town’s contemporary aura and pertinence, they will progress this first stage of the project into a second, devising phase. The participants will then create an assortment of stories that will be performed in peculiar, forbidden, hidden and extraordinary spaces around the town. The audience will be led by participant/actors linking these stories together, making a dramaturgical sense and narrative rhythm apparent.
The current dates for this project are flexible, but the majority of the work and the performance itself will probably be in the summer.
If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please do send your CV and an outline of your relevant experience to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 31st March 2017.
