Freelance Artist Opportunities - secondary schools in Worcestershire

Worcester Arts Partnership

BBC 10 Pieces Project




Worcestershire County Arts Service and Worcestershire Youth Music are looking for a range of freelance artists to deliver workshops in secondary schools in Worcestershire during May - July 2016.


We need artists for a new project where schools are invited to devise and perform creative responses to the BBC’s new Ten Pieces for Secondary Schools


We would like to artists from across the county to send us an Expression of Interest in the project. We are looking for a number of artists who are experienced in working in secondary schools with the following skills:


-   Physical Theatre

  • Turntablism
  • Composition/devising
  • Percussion
  • Contemporary Dance
  • Street Dance
  • Drama


We are particularly interested in hearing from dance and drama practitioners who have experience of working with children with severe learning difficulties.


The resulting pieces will then be presented as part of a special performance on Wednesday 6th July 2016 at No 8 Arts Centre in Pershore as part of the Voices and Visions Festival.


To apply – Please send CV plus a covering letter outlining your interest in the project including your approach to working with schools on this project.  Please send this to  Steve Wilson, County Arts Officer by email to swilson@worcestershire.gov.uk.
