Mini-commission call-outs for Collingwood School & Media Arts College
04 November 2021
Culture Bridge North East (CBNE), in collaboration with Collingwood School and Media Arts College in Morpeth, are seeking artists/organisations to deliver an innovative schoolpartnership project.
Arts and culture are the rights of every child and we believe that pupils at Collingwood School & Media Arts College should be allowed to explore and celebrate their talents; they should be stretched and challenged and they should be prepared for the next stages of their lives. Cultural inclusion is at the heart of what we do; however, we are looking to address an increasing concern about the disparities in opportunities for those groups who are already too often marginalised in society. Groups like our learners, with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), for example.
Brief: We are looking for experienced, professional artists and organisations/companies from a variety of art forms, who have experience of working with and alongside young people with SEND, to deliver a series of one day workshops in Collingwood School from November 2021 - March 2022. There are seven mini-commissions available. Dates and times are flexible for workshop delivery. Pupils will range from 11-18 years old.
Application deadline: Monday 15 November 2021
