Opportunity for local artists and groups

Erdington District Map

We are looking for 4 ideas to support in the Erdington District that will see artists working in one of the 4 wards: Tyburn; Erdington; Stockland Green and Kingstanding.

Each idea needs to have:

  1. A participatory arts activity that is delivered in one of the wards
  2. That has a local partner in that ward
  3. That artistically has a link with some aspect of the Birmingham Rep Theatre’s programme
  4. Engages people who wouldn’t normally, in an arts activity
  5. Applied for by an artist or group of artists or arts organisation

Ideally we would like the artist or group who apply to be a resident of one of the four wards (although the idea doesn’t have to be delivered in the ward in which you live).

Your activity can be a one off event or a series of activities depending how you wish to use the budget.

We are looking for ideas that links with an aspect of the Birmingham Rep’s programme. This could be a theme that is drawn on or a direct relation to the show. As part of your application you can request tickets for a particular show. For further details of their programme visit http://www.birmingham-rep.co.uk/whats-on/

You will need to be able to advertise your activity and a summary of its success on the CAFÉ Arts website as well as any other means that will be valuable to your idea.

All artists are to have a DBS certificate of less than 2 years old and their own Public Liability Insurance of £2 million minimum.

Timeframe: All activity to be delivered ideally by 31st March 2016 or no later than the school Easter holidays (by 10th April)

Budget: £250 inclusive of any fee and resources required

Application: using the application form and with a supporting CV and/or examples of your work. Photos or links to a website can also be provided.

Deadline: Deadline Thursday 4th February 12noon

Selection Process: a panel are reviewing applications on Monday 8th February. A further interview or questions via phone or email may be required. We will try and provide feedback and outcomes to everyone however if the volume is high we will only respond to those who are successful.
