Call for expressions of interest for project at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery
Deadline: Wed 26 Feb 2020
We are seeking to engage a professional writer or poet to co-create and facilitate, with the museum’s Learning team, a workshop that focuses on literacy and Pre-Raphaelite art for our Pre-Raphaelites temporary Exhibition taking place from 16 May—27 September 2020. This takes a fresh look at the Pre-Raphaelite movement, focusing on paintings of knights and medieval heroines.

The workshops will be suitable for Year 4-6 pupils (aged 8-11) from targeted primary schools in the Bristol area and will last approximately 90 minutes. The emphasis is on providing literacy and art focused activities using real artworks to inspire pupil creativity, use of imagination and speaking and listening skills. They will take place at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery in the temporary exhibition gallery and the art galleries on the second floor.

We are looking for a professional writer or poet who:
• has demonstrable experience of working with school children, aged 8-11 and teachers in either a learning, arts or heritage setting
• is confident leading around 30 children at a time in fun, practical literacy activities (this group of 30 can be divided into smaller groups)
• is available to deliver up to six 90 minute school sessions between May-July 2020
• has experience of co-creating and facilitating learning activities with cultural organisations
