ARTIST & COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES
TOWN CENTRE COMMISSION – ARTIST CALL OUT
HOME Slough: Street Art Commission to design and create an original public street art mural in Slough and deliver street arts workshops, in collaboration with the local community.
Slough is one of the fastest changing boroughs in the country. It has big plans for its town centre redevelopment, with Crossrail and a new airport runway opening in the future. However, Slough’s young, diverse and vibrant population with its creativity is the town’s true asset. This Street Art Project should reflect this through moments of artistic brilliance and ability to transform the space.
The Project aims:
• To create an excellent artwork reflecting a positive image of Slough as the home of an eclectic, open and resourceful community.
• Open up opportunities for Slough’s new street artists
• transform the town centre’s unused spaces, such as hoardings and walls, bringing the image of change, openness and positivity
If you are an interested artist – please look at our artist brief and submit your application by Friday 12th April by emailing the HOME Slough Programme Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
CALL OUT FOR ARTISTS AND MAKERS FOR FAMILY WORKSHOPS
Over the next year there will be opportunities for artists to run family workshops at HOME on the High Street. We are interested in hearing from professional artists with different skills from paper-cutting to lantern making to knitting who will enjoy devising and leading workshops for families in Slough.
We are based in the heart of this multi-cultural town, and looking for workshops that bring families together, they could be responsive to the ideas of home or high streets (or re-imagining high streets), or more generic.
We will keep the information of all those we hear from and get in touch if and when we have an available opportunity. Artists will need to have an enhanced DBS check in place to apply.
If you are interested please e-mail your CV to email@example.com and the types of workshops you would be interested in offering, including your daily rates/fees for the workshops proposed.
