*Extended Deadline* Artist Opportunity - Breakout Youth
We are inviting artists and facilitators across multiple disciplines to submit proposals to develop a new project in partnership with GHT and Breakout Youth.
This is a great opportunity for a local artist with experience working with young people to develop this area of their practise.
God’s House Tower has teamed up with Breakout Youth in an effort to provide a new and stimulating programme of activity between March and June 2021. This project is to support the work of breakout youth, develop creative skills and develop lasting connections between its members and the wider arts community. We also aim to break down barriers and open up access to GHT; many members may not feel that art galleries or heritage buildings are for them. We want to change this impression and showcase GHT as a welcoming and friendly space for more young people.
We are accepting project proposal from artists and facilitators from a range of disciplines. Proposals should demonstrate:
- Deliverable and engaging activities which will make the group feel more connected to each other and develop their creative skills
- A structured plan for a series of sessions, developing work and growing ideas
- Room for co-creation and development with the participants
- Ability to create a tangible outcome for a sharing event in GHT
- Relevance to the group in the context of LGBTQIA+ history or stories
‘a space’ arts recognises the positive value of diversity and promotes equality. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds particularly from artists from ethnically diverse backgrounds and artists who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community.
The deadline for applications has been EXTENDED to 5pm on Friday 5th March.
