Visual Artist/Crafts Workshop Facilitator require for Connecting Corby launch event on Sunday 24th March 2019

Made in Corby is a programme of new arts activities focussing on working with local communities, artists, arts and voluntary organisations, businesses and the public in Corby to ensure that the arts are at the heart of positive change in the town and the borough.

Made in Corby will be running a series of launch events for Connecting Corby; a new intergenerational project that seeks to bring people together on the estates of Exeter, Lloyds, Kingswood and Hazel Leys, creating new friendships across the generations and empowering local residents to plan activities for their community.

We are looking for a local visual artist/facilitator to deliver a one-off workshop for one of these launch events.

The objects should be able to be created on a drop-in, rolling basis with minimal artist guidance and in not more than 30mins. The event runs from 11-4pm with breaks. The facilitator is responsible for supplying their own materials, although Made in Corby will cover reasonable materials cost as set out in your proposal. Please budget for approximately 70 participants throughout the day.
