Lewisham Council is calling out for artists to develop Vaccine Confidence Creative Projects.

These commissions
are for creatives to work on different small projects with communities in areas
of Lewisham where there is lower Covid-19 vaccine take up and confidence. 

with communities can be with children and young people or adults in a community
setting or schools/colleges and there will be support to connect you with these

We are
open to suggestions from those who have experience in working with communities
creatively, on the type of creative projects they think would fit the aims of
this funding.

Each project
needs to allow community members the opportunity to discuss the benefits of the
Covid-19 vaccine in a meaningful way (there will be support from Lewisham Public
Health on this).  From these discussions on
protecting the wider community, participants need to be able to creatively
express themselves to make something which can be shared widely.  This could take any creative form e.g. an artwork,
mural, film or writing but the product must be able to be shared easily and
last after the project has finished. 

is a lower take up of Covid-19 vaccines currently from Lewisham’s black residents
and we will be looking to support projects and practitioners that connect
strongly with our black communities.    

Due to
time frame it would be helpful if applicants already have an up to date DBS
check if they are aiming to work with children and young
