Freelance opportunity : Youth Clubs Artist Commission

Youth Clubs Artist Commission

An Lanntair wish to commission a visual artist to work with youth groups in Lewis and Harris.

One artist will be selected to work with participating youth clubs and groups in Lewis and Harris (approx. 6 groups).  The artist will facilitate creative sessions with the youth groups inspired by their own creative practice.  They will support the young people to create a group site-specific artwork at each youth club location, or one artwork involving input from all the youth clubs. We welcome proposals from visual artists working in any media.

We anticipate that the successful artist will work with each youth group for between two and four sessions. The fee will be paid at Scottish Artist’s Union hourly pay rates up to a maximum of 36 hours.  The budget for materials and equipment is £500.  Travel expenses provided.

PVG membership required
