One roof, many stories: radical and inclusive histories – local Blackheath/Lewisham National Heritage Lottery Funded project seeking artists/ educators to devise and deliver creative workshop sessions for local school and youth club.
This is part of a wider community project to research and interpret the radical and inclusive traditions of the Church of the Ascension, Dartmouth Row.
The project will seek participants responses to stories, images and biographies connected to the Church – reflecting a range of experiences including social history, migration, social justice, LGBTQIA+ activism.
The workshop content will be developed collaboratively and agreed with the project co-ordinator to ensure that project outcomes are addressed.
The project is looking for expressions of interest from arts practitioners with experience of facilitating workshops with children and young people.
Please only email a brief note (100 words max) at this stage – briefly tell us your experience with children and creative/ history projects, you can add links to your work. No email attachments please. We will send more project background on request.
We are open to proposals of work with a range of visual and digital media that will both engage the participants and produce images and text which can be edited to create digitised content for interpretative material – e.g banners, screens, video and audio.
You must have current DBS, experience of working with children and/ or young people (e.g. school / gallery/museum or other learning setting) and be available to deliver workshops between July and March 2022.
We expect to run workshops during summer holiday (youth) and autumn terms (KS2 / school). Workshop fee to be agreed, exact days, numbers and sessions tbc – we expect youth work with smaller group once a week over 3-4 sessions, and school 2-3 sessions with KS2 class-sized group.
Please email expressions of interest to email@example.com.
