Spare Tyre seeking Freelance Creatives to Join Their Pool

Get in touch by 11 March 2022.

Open Until:

Posted: 03/02/2022

Spare Tyre are currently in need of a small number of freelance UK-based creative practitioners to join us as part of our in-person and online practitioner pool.

They have a number of participatory and performance projects planned for the year and would like to bring in some new voices to work on them.

Projects include:

  1. Together: a 5-year residency year round at the Haynes Dementia Centre in partnership with Jackson’s Lane, with a weekly artists in residence day (mostly in-person with occasional online practice, in Haringey)  (from April 2022–March 2023)
  2. We Will Be Happy Here: performance project with co-creative participatory programme collaborating with learning disabled adults (from March 2022–May 2023)
  3. Ghyama! Arts: a 3-year Autumn residency at the Bangladeshi Parents and Carers Association (BPCA) in partnership with St Margaret’s House (blended practice online and in-person at Tower Hamlets and Newham). A participatory project for learning disabled adults (from September 2022)

You might be interested in working on one or all of these. Regardless, Spare Tyre would be delighted if you applied.

They want to work with people who want to change the world

Rebecca Manson Jones, Spare Tyre Artistic Director (Joint CEO)

These roles may be for you if you:

  • are interested in devising, running, and evaluating creatively a project with people living with dementias
  • have a high degree of mental and emotional flexibility, and generosity of spirit
  • have both verbal and non-verbal performance and communication skills
  • feel like ‘part artist, part social revolutionary’ describes you well

For the projects above, Spare Tyre are looking for facilitators, artists, and performers, with experience or an interest in learning sensory practice. They want to make their team more representative of the participants they are working with in 2022, so they welcome applications from and are taking steps to approach people less well represented as arts practitioners, such as:

  • From South Asian heritage and Global Ethnic Majority populations
  • Disabled (including hidden or learning disabled)
  • Neurodiverse
  • Bengali speakers
  • From lower socio economic backgrounds
  • Women and nonbinary people

Get in touch by Friday 11th March at 10am.

More information and how to apply can be found here.

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
