Open Call for Artists to Work with Wysing Arts Centre
We are delighted to be working alongside Wysing Arts Centre to deliver two workshops to engage with local audiences and communities in Brandon and Chatteris for their New Geographies project. A key part of New Geographies is the nomination of overlooked or unexpected places across the East of England by those who live and work here for a series of ten new site-specific art commissions from Summer 2018. The aim of the workshops is to encourage and promote the nomination of interesting places across the region and to find creative and playful ways for the public to engage with this process.
The confirmed dates for the workshop sessions are:
9 September, Heritage Open Weekend, Chatteris Museum (10am – 2pm)
23 September, Fire & Flint Festival, Brandon (afternoon event, time and location TBC)
CALL FOR ARTISTS
We are looking for an artist who lives and works in or around The Fens or The Brecks and who has experience working with the public, including children and young people (you must hold a current DBS certificate). You will have excellent artistic facilitation skills and experience delivering high quality engagement projects in the field of visual arts.
The total artist fee is £780 (expected 4 days’ work) plus a separate materials and travel budget up to £500.
