Artist and Author in Residence – Summer Reading Challenge 2019
Deadline: Thu 31 Jan 2019
Inspire: Culture, Learning and Libraries delivers cultural and learning services across Nottinghamshire. As part of our 2018 – 2022 NPO agreement, we will commission artists in residence to create and deliver a programme of visual arts and literacy activity in libraries for children and families.

Stimulating creativity and imagination, artists will enhance our existing library programmes and influence new directions using their professional expertise and leave a legacy of collaborative work as published, digital or made work.

We are looking for one visual artist and one author/writer (noting some authors are also illustrators and some artists use words and stories as their practice).

The selected artist and author will take wide inspiration from the 2019 Summer Reading Challenge theme, Space Chase. Thinking about storytelling, fun, literacy and visual literacy they will develop a programme in collaboration with Inspires Arts Team to work with schools in the summer term and in Nottinghamshire Libraries during the school summer holidays.
