Call for artists and creatives to provide new Council community centres project
Wed, November 24, 2021
Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Community Development team is looking for artists to provide creative workshops in community venues.
The call for experienced creatives and community arts practitioners is for a Borough-wide project running until March 2022 to support people as they reconnect through creative activities at their local community centre.
The freelance opportunities for creative workshop tutors and project facilitators is part of a project funded by the Department for Communities through its Covid Community Recovery Fund. This will see a wide range of creative activities delivered in community venues, including creative writing, visual arts, craft and dance.
Activities can be one-off taster sessions or three to six-week courses, depending on need and suitability.
The project is particularly focused on older people, people living with disability; children and young people, carers; and anyone who has been adversely impacted by the pandemic
Council is interested in hearing from you if you have experience in visual arts, crafts, community arts, dance and performance, literature, and verbal arts, along with practitioners who have experience in teaching creative arts to groups with special needs.
To express an interest, please email a recent CV, evidence of activity experience and delivery along with sample proposed workshops and confirmation of having (or willing to obtain) a current Access NI certificate to email@example.com by Monday 6th December 2021 at 12 noon.
