We are looking for proposals from arts practitioners based across the world to deliver our monthly family workshops. The workshops will be broadcast over Zoom, and participants will either be able to take part in person at Site Gallery (where possible) or from their own homes.
This series is part of our on-going commitment to making our workshops accessible to physical and virtual audiences simultaneously, to enable participants to engage on their own terms.
We are looking for proposals from artists who offer innovative and exciting ways for participants to engage with their work. Previous family workshops have included; Beat making with Joseph Bond, FoxDot and Coding with Lucy Cheesman, Make Your Own TikTok Routine with Angga Kara and Make Your Own Karaoke Video with Lucy Vann.
All proposals for our family workshops will be assessed by Society of Explorers, our young people’s programme of 14-18 year olds, who are intrinsic to shaping and supporting our work with young people and families.
You will be asked to lead an English-language workshop between 13:00–15:00pm GMT on one of the following days – 23 January, 20 February, 20 March, 24 April or 22 May. The workshops will be captioned.
Workshops can use digital or more traditional materials. There is no set theme but we welcome applications that give participants an entry point into your creative process so they can leave with fresh perspectives or new skills. We will offer you technical and production support ahead of your session and The Society of Explorers will also offer their feedback.
Each artist will receive a fee of £300 for the delivery and planning of the workshop.
Site Gallery is an actively anti-racist organisation and through all our opportunities look to amplify the voices of those who are marginalised and underrepresented. We are actively seeking applications from Black artists, artists of colour, LGBTQIA+ artists and disabled artists.
Artists can be based anywhere in the world, though applications must be made in English and you must be available to deliver the sessions at the proposed time.
Please complete the application form.
The deadline for applications is Monday 09 November 2020 at 11.59pm. We aim to respond to selected submissions by Thursday 03 December 2020.
If you have any difficulties with the application, or you want to respond in alternative way, please get in touch: email@example.com
