Current Opportunities

Creative Explorers Summer Activity

Staffordshire Libraries & Arts Service are seeking an artist to help develop a creative resource for our Creative Explorers programme aimed at children age 4-12 and their carers/ families. The programme will run alongside and support this year’s Summer Reading Challenge in Libraries, which this year celebrates ‘Gadgeteers’ – discovering the science and innovation behind the world around us.

We are working with Staffordshire’s Virtual School to commission an artist to develop an activity resource which encourages children to discover and explore ways to be creative with simple everyday technology inspired by this year’s Science theme.

The artist will create a resource that can easily be reproduced and shared online, via email or printed off for use at home, school or in library settings. This will include a mix of activities and prompts that encourage creative exploration around the theme of science & technology, a demonstration video, bespoke packs for looked after children and a series of creative workshops ‘in person’ at the end of the summer.

Period of commission: 23 May – 10 September 2022.

Artist Total Fee: £5,000 excl VAT, including all materials, travel & expenses.

Deadline for application: Friday 13 May.
