Apply Now | Artist Workshop Open Call

Artist Workshop! We want to hear about your practice 

View full brief 

We’re on the search for more artists to join our Workshop Wednesday programme, at Wash Your Words: Langdale Library and Laundry Room!

We are looking to commission artists who work within a socially engaged practice (art that is collaborative and often participatory) to deliver highly engaging and creative workshops to the Mereside community. 

Our aim is to deliver a programme that gives residents new skills, and enables conversations to happen with our team, and the artist, as we explore our food waste, sustainability, and restorative programme.

The structure of the sessions allow residents to drop-in during the 3 hours with no booking or payment required.

How to apply

Please submit a short paragraph outlining a proposal for a 3 hour community workshop, this can also be across two sessions depending on time needed to achieve an outcome (ie: firing of ceramics, developing images through photography or dyes using natural pigments). 

The submissions will be taken to our core, community group at Wash Your Words, who will decide which activities/artists they would like to work with. 

Budget for each session is £300 to £400 (dependant on experience). This is to cover materials and planning. Payment is made against milestones as per contract. 

The artist will be responsible for tax and national insurance contributions, and must provide their UTR or company registration number and evidence to demonstrate eligibility to work in the UK. 

You can find more information on what documentation is required on the Government website

Deadline for applications: 10.07.23 (12pm)
