Artist Brief for Hiraeth – Longing

– Scheduled to take place Jan – March 19 –

 

Background & Context

Our mission is to inspire and involve people in community arts, investing in and nurturing creativity. We have received funding from Awards for All Wales and the Arts Council of Wales to deliver an exciting project working with refugees in Newtown and Wrexham.

Brief

Project Aim: Hireath – Longing is a project that aims to support refugees to integrate with the local communities they are living in

 

Project Outcomes:

  • Creation of tangible and intangible art works, either as an individual or a group
  • Improved participants English / Welsh language skills
  • Improved community cohesion – positive relationships developed, development of social networks, providing opportunities for individuals to meet and socialise within their own community groupings and with people of other backgrounds
  • Better understanding and mutual acceptance between people – provides opportunities for refugees to share their own cultural heritage and learn more about British culture and history and vice versa
  • Developed and increased participants skills
  • Increased health and wellbeing – reducing their sense of isolation, boosting their self-esteem, feeling pride in themselves

 

What: Refugees can often be misunderstood, be seen as a threat or are targets of hate crime and are rarely perceived as making a valued contribution to our society. This project aims to challenge these perceptions and give refugees a platform to tell their own story thus engaging the wider community about the issues that refugees face in order break down barriers and prejudices.

 

The sessions will be aimed at refugees but will involve people from the local community so that relationships can be built. The art works created will tell the stories of those involved and look at the similarities of the refugees and people from the local community about understanding their identity and longing for home.

 

We’re looking for 2 artists to work in Wrexham and 2 artists to work in Powys who together can deliver 25 sessions in a range of art forms which could include: storytelling, photography, film, animation, drumming or painting.

 

We will engage participants from the outset by involving them in the planning of the project. In November 2018, having identified possible participants, we want the 2 artists to run a consultation session with them about what arts activities they would like to do, which venue would suit them and the best timings to run the project. We will then with the artists input put things in place to deliver the project to the participant’s specifications.

 

We will run weekly workshops over 10 weeks from January – March 2019. We will look to deliver 10 workshops with young people, 10 workshops with families and deliver 5 open access workshops for the whole community. We are open to more or less sessions being allocated to the different groups or to running full day or ½ day sessions with particular groups; please specify this in your application.

The artists must apply together.

Artist Brief for The Warring Arts

– Scheduled to take place Oct – Nov 2018 –

 

Background & Context

Our mission is to inspire and involve people in community arts, investing in and nurturing creativity. The project will focus on the entertainment, arts and culture that was around at the time of First World War and directly afterwards and will explore the stories of individuals and communities in North Powys and what entertainment was on and used to celebrate the armistice. We will also explore existing accounts and get a broader picture of the arts and culture of the time across the UK and the World. We will look at objects, photographs, documents, books, newspapers, songs, paintings, performance styles and from the time, both existing and from people’s personal collections.

The First World War and the period afterwards was a time of great social upheaval.  The project aims to create an understanding of the impact of the war on arts and culture and people’s attitudes and look at how this was shaped through cartoons, songs, films, dance styles etc. and how they were used not only as morale boosters but also as a way to recruit young men. At the time the role of women was also changing and censorship was in place. The wars toll on people’s wellbeing was reflected in the changes to painting, with the birth of abstract and expressionist art, jazz became popular and sporting events rose in their perceived entertainment value, literature developed a short and rapid style and film became popular entertainment.

The project is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Brief

Project Aim: The Warring Arts aims to increase participants understanding of the First World War and to engage those who may not have before in their local heritage

 

Project Outcomes:

  • The project activities will be interesting, fun and rewarding
  • Participants will develop their knowledge and understanding of WWI through the activities of the project
  • Participants will develop and learn a range of skills through the activities and thus be able to better look after, manage and share their heritage
  • Participants, particularly young people aged 11 – 25 will have more positive attitudes towards heritage

 

What: We are looking for artists working in a range of art forms to work with a range of groups in Llanfyllin and the surrounding area (Llanrhaeadr, Llansantffraid, Llanfechain, Meifod, Llanwddyn for example). The sessions will look to engage people with their heritage and encourage them to bring along any memorabilia they may have. This will be used as a starting point to create their own work that will tell the story or reflect that time.

 

The project will culminate in a community event showcasing the work created and we envisage it to take the guise of a variety show which was popular at the time and will include poetry, dance, sketches, a film to entertain the troops, songs, cartoons.

 

We will work provide open access workshops aimed at bringing different ages and abilities together. We will also look to work with children and young people in and out of school through the local schools, young carers group, playgroups, a disability youth group and young farmers. We will look to include local residents through groups such as Mens Sheds, Civic Society, Merched y Wawr, Women’s Institute, Mencap and others.

 

We want to see in your application what groups you would be able to work with, what art forms you can deliver in, how you will engage people with the heritage of entertainment from the time of the First World War, what artistic outputs you expect and how many sessions it would take to achieve it.

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!
