Creative practitioner sought for ‘Circle of Reflection and Hope’ youth project
Warwick District Council is seeking to appoint a creative practitioner to work with young people aged 11-16 to create five pop-up art installations that reflect how the pandemic has affected their wellbeing.
Working with schools and youth groups across the district, the creative practitioner will facilitate the creation of 50 flags made by young people in a series of workshops. The flags will be designed to reflect the effects that the pandemic has had on them and what their hopes and ambitions are for the future. The event will be supported with information provided to young people about art and health services in Warwick District which they can access.
The roving pop-up installation will see the flags placed on poles in a circle for people to wander through, enjoying the designs and allowing them to reflect, too.
The appointed practitioner will be responsible for coordinating the design, creation, and construction of the installation, with a project fee of £8,300 to assist with associated costs.
Applications are open now with a closing date of Monday 7 February 2022. More information including how to apply is available at https://www.warwickdc.gov.uk/info/20356/arts_development/1763/the_circle_of_reflection_and_hope
