Callout for artists for Expressive Arts project in Secondary Schools

Callout for artists - Expressive Arts Professional Development Residency Project

A2 Connect, the Arts and Education Network for Central South Wales, would like to hear from artists interested in delivering Expressive Arts projects in Secondary schools in 2018.

Artists will be working alongside teachers in delivering a number of workshops in the school, leading up to a live performance event with KS3 students. This performance may be immersive, promenade, indoors and outdoors, and utilise the school’s existing facilities and spaces. The projects will involve collaboration between two or more subject areas within each school. This is a professional development opportunity for the teachers involved and will also include some out of school development sessions facilitated by A2 Connect.

We are looking for artists who have experience working with teachers and leading projects in a secondary school environment, who can work collaboratively across art forms, who have original approaches to performance and can include diverse art forms in performance.

Artists working in all forms of Expressive Arts are encouraged to apply, including music, dance, poetry, drama, graphic design, textiles, circus, media, performance technology and visual arts. In particular we are interested in artists who work in either

  • Physical theatre/dance/circus
  • Visual arts & performance
  • Music & poetry

In addition we are looking for a creative director to oversee an immersive performance in one of the schools, over an intensive week in June, plus planning sessions.

Artists will need to have or be willing to undertake full current DBS checks

Each project is tailored to the individual school that and so each has a different specific timeline, and group sizes will vary. We estimate approx 10 sessions in total per artist; 1 session is half a day at a rate of £120

Outline timeline:

  • Feb 2018 - Lead artists recruited in consultation with the schools
  • March 2018 - 3 days collaborative development/planning
  • March - June 2018 - Artists sessions in school.
  • June 2018 - Performance
  • July 2018 - Evaluation

Lead artists may be assisted by emerging artists who have less experience of working in schools, supported by A2 Connect.
Please send a cv and short cover letter outlining what your practice is, what you could offer to this project and your outline availability to zoe@artsactive.org.uk by 21st February. Please email or call Zoe on 02920 878571 if you would like to discuss further.
