Leading Scarborough-based visual arts organisation, Crescent Arts, is relaunching its popular creative workshop programme and is looking to connect with practitioners to facilitate these sessions. We want to invite new voices and talent into the organisation and offer new perspectives to audiences. Our current focus for these workshops is printmaking, tying in with the upcoming print exhibition ‘Flourish’ at Woodend Gallery in partnership with theWest Yorkshire Print Workshop and Scarborough Museum Trust.
Alongside more traditional print practice, we are open to alternative and expanded ideas of print, from the digital to the physical sphere, from 3-D printing to sustainable practice. Our workshops typically vary from afternoon to day length sessions and we are open to suggestions from artists, the more inventive the better!
We particularly want to hear from artists/facilitators who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and disabled as part of our commitment to furthering equality and diversity in costal communities and the creative industries. We are working hard to ensure no barriers exist for artists to participate in our programme so please let us know if there is additional support we can provide to ensure our reach is inclusive of everyone.
This is a paid opportunity. We have the potential for online or in person delivery, abiding by current COVID-19 guidelines.
Deadline: Friday 25th September 2020
