We have been awarded some project funding within our emergency response grant from Arts Council England. All the projects and opportunities will be detailed here.

Call out for 3 Artists/Companies, to create & pilot Schools Workshops at the Princess.

The Princess Theatre and Arts Centre are looking for 3 artists or companies; to build a programme of creative practical workshops for local schools.

The aim of the project is to engage local school children in creative activities at the Princess Theatre and Arts Centre – forging a relationship with both the venue and the arts.

The Princess has identified creative education as an area of importance for its future. The artists or companies will need to develop inspiring sessions that will allow children to develop how they explore the world, giving unique early experiences and a relationship with art at cultural venues, specifically the Princess Theatre and Arts Centre.

There are no prescriptive themes, the genres could include; set design, music, drama, digital shorts, puppet design, dance, spoken word, creative writing. The possibilities are endless.

The companies or artists will create a series of workshops with budget for materials, piloting one of the workshops in December. Ideally this would be at the Princess, however as COVID causes restrictions it is likely this will be held remotely via digital link.

The pilot workshops will be aimed at school years 5 & 6 (KS2).

The fee will be £1250 for each company/artist to work a total of 50 hours over 6 weeks. This will include workshop delivery, preparation and a number of plenary sessions.

We are looking for artists or companies, who are specialists in their field, with experience and passion for inspiring and encouraging young people through the delivery of creative educational workshops.

As part of their commitment to local creative freelance development and a desire to expand their own networks, the Princess want to recruit quality South West based artists and companies to produce this work.

Please send a CV and a covering letter to [email protected] with the subject SCHOOLS PROGRAMME.

Must hold a valid DBS.

Deadline: Tuesday 20th October 12pm

Interviews: wb 26th October
