Odd Theatre Company are looking for artists to facilitate workshops to produce innovative artwork compatible with digital platforms
We are working with a group of young people who will investigate social issues that are important to their community. The young people will find out what matters by interviewing people and groups in their area, through varied art-forms and community reporting.
The young people will work with you to create either: photography; spoken word; visual art; graphics; story-telling; film; audio-boo; media reports; music tracks; sound recordings; or any other creative outlet that can be showcased on a national website. This project is the first of a high-profile and national scheme which uses a digital platform for young people to research, connect, and share stories about their community. We are open to any ideas of how you as an artist can work with these young people to create a creative, exciting and innovative piece of community reporting for the web.
Projects will take place in Birmingham. The programme is a joint partnership between Rathbone and Odd Theatre Company. It has been funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
Please submit your pitch to email@example.com by 9th August 2012 5pm. Within your pitch please state what experience you have working with young people; your art-form specialism and examples of your past achievements; how you envisage your art-form to express the stories of the community and why you think young people will engage with this. Please ensure your end product will be something that can be showcased online. Interviews will be held on 22nd August, and training for successful artists will be delivered on 29th August. The project will run every Thursday from 6th September – 25th October. You won't need to be available for all sessions.
