At ARCADE, we value fairness and understand that in order for diversity in the arts to improve, we have to make sure all our paid opportunities for more than 1 day of work go out to advert.
We are recruiting for an Immersive Artist / Facilitator with experience of working with disabled children or young people, to collaborate with us on an exciting R&D led by KIT Theatre at Springhead SEND School in Scarborough this summer.
Freelance Contract: 2 days prep & planning and 5 days delivery
Fee: 7 days @ £200 per day, (£1,400 in total)
Dates of work: 28th June - 2nd July 2021
Application deadline: 9am, 12th April
The artist will work alongside pupils and teachers and other KIT artists to respond to young people’s ideas as they come to the aid of a lost Olympian time traveller. This project will emerge organically and responsively over the intensive residency period and will require the creative skills and attitude to embrace this collaborative journey into the unknown.
We are interested in meeting artists with a wide range of skills such as:
actor-musicians confident in improvising songs in the moment
puppeteers or sensory storytellers experienced in working with young and non-verbal children
designers or illustrators, able to conjure objects or pictures in response to the ideas young people share
This list is not exhaustive and if you have other skills relevant to the project, we’d still really like to hear from you.
