Artist Call-Out: Lincolnshire Folk Tales Project, Adverse Camber
Deadline: Mon 15 Apr 2024
Adverse Camber is looking for two storytellers to deliver workshops in three primary schools (ages 8–11) and lead a week-long story-making summer project (ages 11–15) in Lincolnshire between May–November 2024.
About The Project:
'Lincolnshire Folk Tales: Origins, Legacies, Connections, Futures’ is a new project exploring the origins, legacies, connections and futures of Lincolnshire folk tales, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and Nottingham Trent University, and led by Dr Rory Waterman, Associate Professor of Modern & Contemporary Literature and Dr Anna Milon

Working as a stakeholder in the project, Adverse Camber will engage children and young people (CYP) with the 'Lincolnshire Folk Tales’ project through outreach workshops in 3x rural primary schools (ages 8–11) in Lincolnshire between May–July 2024 and a week-long story-making summer project (ages 11–15) in Lincoln during August. The project aims to support CYP to improve confidence, build their skills in literacy, communication and performance, and develop their social skills in working collaboratively together. We hope it will also contribute to positive mental health and wellbeing, and pride in place, for CYP.

About the opportunity, and who we are looking for:

We are looking for two artists who consider themselves storytellers, working within the oral tradition. The artists should have experience of working with young people, ideally co-creatively or through participatory engagement. We welcome artists with an interest in adapting and telling stories in innovative ways, and who are experienced in, or open to, using digital technology and/or creating podcasts/recordings. Technical support will be provided.

Artists must be willing and able to travel to Lincoln and to rural areas of Lincolnshire. We would particularly like to see applications from artists of colour, artists from working class backgrounds and disabled artists as they are currently underrepresented in our artist pool.

Role 1: School Artist (x 1 artist)
Role 2: Story-Making Summer Project Artist (x 2 artists)

There is a preference that the Schools’ Artist will also deliver one of the Summer Project roles, but you can apply for the school’s role, the summer project role, or both.

Schools Artist Fee
Artist Fee: 13 x Days Delivery @ £250 per day (gross): £3,250.00

Summer School Artist Fee
Artist Fee: 7 x Days Delivery @ £250 per day (gross): £1,750.00 (per person)
