Artist Opportunity Inverurie

Lead Artist opportunity: for OpeningUp, a project based in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire,
Fee £4000. Start mid-Oct. Project duration-approx 3 months.
Application deadline; 9 September 2010.

Aberdeenshire Council Arts Team in partnership with Inverurie Health Development Group seek a Lead Artist specialising in film and/or animation to develop and deliver “OpeningUp”, a project, which will engage marginalised groups in Inverurie and, through the use of art and creative practice, consult and reflect on barriers which they experience in relation to participation in daily activities within the community.
Funding has been provided by See Me to support a Lead Artist to work with eight groups already indentified through earlier consultation, and, with the support of care workers, and in some cases other arts practitioners already active with the groups, encourage the participants to express their issues through a range of artistic activities and events. Ultimately, the aim is to develop and produce a short film which will be a quality artwork in its own right, but which will also be used to raise awareness of the issues with the wider community and support change to address these.
A further budget of £2000 is available for materials and additional activity.
