Opportunity for Artist /Facilitator - The Infirmary, University of Worcester

Opportunity for Artist /Facilitator - The Infirmary, University of Worcester
The Infirmary is an interactive exhibition at the University of Worcester exploring health and the medical stories of one of England’s oldest Infirmaries. We are offering a commission for an artist/facilitator to work with older members of our community who may be encountering life changes such as redundancy, isolation, ill health or bereavement. The project period is 4-6 months and should deliver a highly enriching experience for the participants. Other key aspects are development of a lasting resource for use with other audiences and an interest in promoting inter-generational learning.
We are looking for innovative, high quality practice approaches, with practitioners who are experienced in working with older people (over 50) in community and health related contexts.  Our key partnering organisation is Age UK.
We are open to different art forms.
Tender Deadline:  12 noon 11 February  2013
Project Delivery: March – July 2013 (Subject to final negotiations)* Project Brief attached
