Wysing Arts Centre and Kettle’s Yard are working together on Circuit, a four- year project connecting 15-25 year olds to the arts in galleries and museums and working in partnership with the youth and cultural sector. Led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, it provides opportunities for young people to steer their own learning and create cultural activity across art disciplines.
Kettle's Yard have an opportunity for an artist to contribute to the planning and delivery of a Circuit partnership project with GAPS - a TCHC Youth Programme for 16-17 year olds that provides work experience with the opportunity for a job alongside vocational qualifications.
The artist will lead participants of the GAPS programme to develop an arts-based project of their own design. She/he will support and guide the group creatively for one morning a week over 5 months to develop tangible results that will be showcased in a final launch event/exhibition. The project will be peer-led, with the GAPS participants taking the lead on the direction of the project. The artist will help to develop an understanding of, and confidence in, the participants’ own artistic skills and their visual literacy.
We’re looking for an artist who’s own practice incorporates elements of collaboration, who has the ability to use a variety of delivery methods in order to engage with a range of learning styles and behaviours.
The closing date for expressions of interest is 12pm on Monday 18 August 2014.
Interviews will take place on Tuesday 26 August 2014.
The successful artist will be required to undergo a standard Disclosure and Barring Service check.
