Opportunity: Call out for a Visual Artist

As part of an ongoing initiative to excite and energise the imagination and reawaken interest in the power of words, Town Hall Arts and Collaborative Schools Ltd are working in partnership inviting primary schools in and around Trowbridge to take part in creative, artist led workshops.

In February and March 2018 we are delivering two 2.5 hour workshops (dates tbc) with Lower Key Stage 2 children (children aged 7, 8 and 9) at Town Hall Arts.

We are therefore inviting proposals from visual artists to develop and lead a 2.5-hour workshop on both days, with 30 children in total each day, from a range of schools. We are open to workshop approaches and activities, but they must be visual arts based and achieve the overall outcome of exciting the imagination and reawakening interest in the power of words. After the workshop there will be a sharing of the work produced and there is an opportunity for it to be displayed at Town Hall Arts for up to 6 weeks. Timings for both days are 8.45 a.m. – 1.30 p.m.

For information only, running concurrently with the visual arts workshop there will be a drama led workshop taking place. Participants will be devising and dramatizing their own stories, inspired by 5 random objects.

Please submit a CV and written visual arts workshop proposals by Friday 15th December 2017, 5.00 p.m. emailing them to Tracy Sullivan, Director, Town Hall Arts: director@townhallarts.co.uk

There is a fixed fee of £500 for the delivery of 2 x 2.5 hour workshops (one in February and one in March), including preparation and afternoon sharing.

Proposals must include anticipated materials costs which the partners will aim to meet, within reason.

Please note that applicants will be expected to have an up to date DBS check.
