Artist Brief for Celebrating Children’s Creativity

– Scheduled to take place April 2018 – February 2019 –

Background & Context

The project has been running since 1999 and is a successful and popular outreach project that takes place in primary schools across North Powys and Wrexham.

We have built a reputation for innovative, high quality arts projects, which offer school children the chance to work with professionals in artistic mediums the schools themselves, cannot offer. Last year’s project resulted in schools engaging in storytelling, book writing, mosaics, willow weaving, arts and crafts and much more.

Brief

We are looking for a range of artists working in all art forms to submit project proposals to deliver workshops in primary schools. Your project can either be for 2 days (or 4 half days) or 4 days (or 8 half days). The average class size is 25 children but can be much less in small rural schools. Some schools appreciate projects that can involve a whole year group or key stage which could be up to 3 classes. We collate suitable proposals in a brochure and send it directly to schools. The schools choose which project they would like to undertake. We will contact you if a school chooses your project. You then contact the school to work out details and mutually agree on suitable working times. Upon successful agreement with artist and school, we will issue contracts to both.

You can submit a maximum of two project proposals.

Remuneration

2 day project: £76.50 for preparation, £306 artist fee and up to £30 for materials = £412.50 total payment for the project.

4 day project: £76.50 for preparation, £612 artist fee and up to £30 for materials = £718.50 total payment for the project.

There is a materials allowance of £30 (inc. VAT) per group. Artists negotiate any additional materials costs with individual schools before the start of the project.

Mileage over a 50 mile roundtrip will be paid at £0.45p per mile.

Any work the school would like to book with you above and beyond 4 days or 2 days will have to be paid directly by them (suggested full day fee £153).

Skills, Qualifications & Experience

Essential:
– Artists applying must have a track record of working with children in the past 2 years
– Work is shown to be well planned and suitable for the abilities of the children
– Able to communicate effectively with children
– Be registered or willing to undertake a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check (previously CRB)
– Agree that we can apply for references from previous positions in relation to the standards set above

Desirable:
– Experience of longer-term projects or residencies

Application Procedure

Please complete the online application form (http://artsconnection.org.uk/jobs/) which will also ask for the following additional info:
– 3 images of previous work
– CV
– DBS Number and Issue Date (if you do not hold a current DBS you must be willing to undertake one as soon as you are in placement, this will cost £55)

Selection Procedure

All applicants will be assessed:
– Solely on the information provided within the Project Proposal Form
– Objectively, based on the requirements of the project outlined in this brief
– Suitable Project Proposals will be sent to schools which then choose which project they would like to undertake
