Artist Brief for Mantle of the Expert Project

– Scheduled to take place Jan – March 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 Start Well group under the Regional Partnership Board (RPB) Integrated Care Fund (ICF) to promote good emotional and mental wellbeing for children and young people.  We are working in partnership with Llanfyllin Primary School.

Brief

Project Aim: To promote good emotional and mental wellbeing for KS1 pupils in Llanfyllin Primary School

 

Project Outcomes:

  • Improved wellbeing (confidence, mood, or improved skills) for participants
  • Increased literary and numeracy skills
  • Increased emotional literacy – due to increased ability to express and communicate ideas, thoughts and feelings
  • Nurtured their capacity for relationships / friendships
  • Better able to work as a team
  • Supporting their physical development through use of physical creative arts

 

What: We are looking for an artist/s to deliver a multi-arts project. The project will involve working with both the English and Welsh stream in Llanfyllin Primary School and we are therefore looking for either one artist to deliver in English and one in Welsh or an artist who can deliver with both groups.

 

The project will involve using the Mantle of the Expert approach to explore issues of bullying within the school and will ask pupils to explore “What responsibility to do we have to each other’s well-being and happiness?” through stories such as The Selfish Giant and The BFG.

 

We and the school have not used Mantle of the Expert before and want to pilot and test its use.  The project will involve a training day for artists (for which the artist will be paid to attend) and teachers and then delivery of a 5 day project (2.5 days per class). There are 45 Year 3 and 4 pupils covering both the Welsh and English streams in the school.

 

Mantle of the Expert works by planning a fictional context where the pupils take on the responsibilities of an expert team. As the team, they are commissioned by a client to work on an assignment, which has been planned to generate tasks and activities that will involve them in studying and developing wide areas of the curriculum.

Artist Brief for The Warring Arts

– 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. 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 performing and literature art forms to work with a range of groups in Llanfyllin and the surrounding area (Llanrhaeadr, Llansantffraid, Llanfechain, Meifod, Llanwddyn for example). The focus of the project is on how arts and culture was changed from WWI and into the 1920’s, project ideas may include creating a short drama piece or film or animation about the changes to art and culture, a demonstration of how dance or music styles changed, it  may be about looking at examples of poetry from the time during and after the war. We’re hoping that the work created 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, film, songs, cartoons.

 

We will 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!
