Deadline approaching - Calling Visual Artists and Designers

Thames Festival Trust are looking for a Worcestershire based artist/designer to deliver visual art based workshops in secondary schools across Worcestershire between March - June 2018 as part of Rivers of the Worldour international arts and education project.

The programme involves the pupils working with an artist or designer on their local river through environmental, economic and cultural learning and themes to learn and gather ideas that are channeled creatively into drawings, paintings, photographs and other visual media which result in the creation of large-scale work of art. The artwork is then curated and exhibited in partner schools outside the UK and along the River Thames walkway in September as part of Totally Thames. Since its creation in 2005, Rivers of the World has been delivered in over twenty countries around the world.

Worcester Stands Tall

Calling all artists!
Decorate a giraffe with Worcester Stands Tall

Would you like the chance to decorate an unusual type of canvas as part of a major public art showcase arriving in Worcester next summer?
There is still time left for artists – both amateur and professional – to get involved with Worcester Stands Tall and submit designs for its loveable giraffe sculptures. 

Worcester Stands Tall will see at least 25 beautifully decorated giraffe sculptures form an art trail through the city streets and public spaces for 10 weeks in summer 2018. 

Currently, each 2.5-metre tall giraffe sculpture is naked – but, with the help of artists from across the country, they will soon be covered in bespoke artwork.

Imaginations have been running wild and some fantastic giraffe designs have already been submitted by artists from across the country – and you could get involved too! 

So, if you like the sound of this project, get your creative thinking cap on, draw up your designs and submit them to us before the deadline of Friday, 5th January 2018.
All the details, including the artist fee, design guidelines and templates are in the artists' information pack which can be downloaded from the Worcester Stands Tall website. Instructions on how to submit your designs are also in the pack.

Artists must submit their designs to artist@worcesterstandstall.co.uk by Friday, 5th January 2018

Worcester Stands Tall is a Wild in Art event brought to the city by St Richard’s Hospice.
