Artist/Project Lead – Cross Lane Hospital/Crescent Arts/Scarborough Museums Trust

Fixed – Term 

Part Time 

The total commissioning fee is £4665 (including fees equivalent to 12 days work at £284.58 based on Artists’ Union England daily rates, travel expenses and production costs. Additional budget for access costs is available)

Application Deadline: Monday 14th June 2021

Crescent Arts, Cross Lane Hospital and Scarborough Museums Trust are seeking a digitally-focused artist with experience of working in settings with people with mental illness to undertake a co-produced creative investigation with in-patients at Cross Lane Hospital, that will start in July 2021 and end by October 2021.

The artist will lead a project to explore how digital technology can be used to support well-being, reduce isolation and de-escalate stress. The project is part of the warm welcome we want to extend to people with diverse minds and bodies and is a first step to help us learn how we can support people who have lived experience of mental illness.

In addition to the fee the artist will benefit from:

  • Accommodation provided by the project organisers.
  • A mentoring session with an access-focused artist
  • Independent counselling support with a qualified counsellor (up to six sessions)
  • Participation in a people-centred evaluation strand that will provide a safe and non-judgemental space for the artist to share feedback
