In partnership with Newington Big Local

We are looking for a Thanet-based artist to work with us on The Best of Us, a new project in Newington, Ramsgate. As part of this, we are looking for an artist who works with people as part of their practice and who:

  • Has a variety of participatory practice experience, working in communities with a diverse range of people
  • Is an experienced facilitator
  • Has experience of project management
  • Is able to work independently
  • Shares the values and ethos of People United
  • Lives in Thanet, Kent.

The project will involve making work with people in Newington (resulting in a public sharing event), organising and managing a summer events programme, and supporting a group of individuals from the community interested in the arts to help lead on the project. This role/work will be supported by Sarah Fox, Creative Producer at People United.

We are looking for someone who can commit to approx. two days a week from April to November 2015. (This may include work in the evenings and weekends and we would expect the artist to spend the majority of the time in Newington). Whilst we are open to artists of all disciplines, there are aspects of this project which would be particularly appropriate for a visual arts practitioner.

Fee: up to £9450 to include travel (depending on experience and need of community). There is an additional budget for materials.

Deadline: Midnight Monday 16 March 2015
