Artist Brief for Creative Sparks

– Scheduled to take place April – November 2019 –

 

Background & Context

Our mission is to inspire people to participate in the arts, enhancing their creativity and wellbeing. We have received funding from the Llysdinam Trust and are working in partnership with Credu to deliver an Art of Light Event.

 

Brief

Project Aim: To enable children and young people of all ages and abilities to learn new skills and have fun

 

Project Outcomes:

  • Improve physical and emotional well-being – the project looks to work with participants in a holistic way
  • Improve confidence and self-esteem – the project will support participants to develop their communication skills, encourage relationships to be built and allows them time to explore and take part in new activities to create art they can be proud of
  • Reduce the negative effect of caring – offering respite to participants to take time off from their daily responsibilities, offering the opportunity to have fun, offering the opportunity to take part in activities that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to do

 

What: We are looking for a pool of artists who can deliver a one-off or series of workshops throughout the year with young carers across Powys. We’re interested in hearing from film makers, photographers, collage artists, 3D visual artists, storytellers, poets, songwriters and others.

 

We are looking for artists who can help us create a fantastic final event in Llandrindod Wells as the Credu office is opposite the bandstand in temple gardens.

 

Some of the ideas for the final event include:

  • Pitching small tents that can be lit from inside with recorded voices, poems, songs, rants, conversations coming from them
  • Illuminated window art to go in the Credu office windows – collaged paper that allows light through and also the potentials for projections of recorded films, still photos etc.
  • Use the bandstand to create a visual merry-go-around (not for sitting on!) with cut-out fantastical creatures lit from the centre to create shadows – any way we could make this turn

 

Target Group: Children and young people

 

Timescale: April – November 2019

 

Venue: Venues across Powys

 

Sessions: 1+

 

For your application please refer to the following:

  • The aim of the project

Ffilm Llanfyllin is run by a small group of passionate volunteers who love film and want to do something positive in the community. We run regular films events most Fridays at the Old New Inn in Llanfyllin.

We are looking for new volunteers to help with our screenings and plan the future programmes. We are specifically looking for volunteers to help with the following:

  • Taking money for tickets on the film night
  • Ability to think on your feet and sort any additional seating or other problems that might arise on the night
  • Assist with technical logistics – e.g. press play on the DVD player
  • Programming film screenings and events

We don’t expect you to help out every Friday but would hope that you could help out at 4 screenings per season. For our Oct – Dec 2018 season we specifically need help on the following dates:

  • 19th Oct
  • 16th Nov
  • 23rd Nov
  • 30th Nov

This is a great opportunity to meet new people and get free entrance to the film!
