Artist Commission Opportunity – A Tonne of Feathers
Culture Weston in partnership with Creative Youth Network are seeking to commission an emerging / early career artist aged under 30, who is interested in working with a youth group from Weston-super-Mare to co-create a public artwork as social action.
The emerging young artist will collaborate with a group of young people to create a large scale art work that will be exhibited in Weston town centre in early June 2021. The work aims to platform the voices of those who are seldom heard and under-represented members of our young communities.
You will lead workshops and sessions with a youth group and collaborate with the young people to create a high quality, dynamic work for exhibition that authentically captures the passion and vision of the youth participants for positive social change and your response to it.
The finished work will also tour to Bristol and Southampton during summer 2021.
The project ‘A Tonne Of Feathers’ is funded by Arts Council England with additional support from Culture Weston.
CLOSING DATE TUESDAY 13 APRIL 2021
