Creative Collaborations at Sennybridge Primary School

Powys Dance are currently delivering a project in partnership with Sennybridge Primary School funded by Arts Council Wales’ Creative Collaborations.

The project is child-led and enquiry focused enabling children to explore the questions they have about the world around them through drama, dance and poetry. Weekly sessions enable children to explore the questions they have and then share their thoughts and findings with others through the artwork they create. We are looking to appoint an artist to support the children to create an installation that will communicate the questions collected over the course of the project. The work will be displayed at Theatr Brycheiniog on 5th & 6th April then travel to Imperial College London for display at the end of June.

We would like the appointed artist to meet with the facilitators who have been leading sessions on 28th February in Brecon to learn about the project so far and plan for the installation. The artist will then co-facilitate two days at the school on 6th & 13th March. There is then two days of independent working to finalise and install the work at Theatr Brycheiniog with an additional ½ day contingency and evaluation.

The fee is £150 per day for 5 days work plus travel expenses. The successful applicant will need to undertake a DBS check.

To apply for this role please send your CV, a cover letter outlining your experience of participatory arts with primary aged children and a proposed approach to the project, and a selection of images of previous projects. Applications and any queries to be sent to Lauren  Hussein, education@dawnspowysdance.org

Deadline: 18th February

Telephone interviews: 20th February
