08 Feb Join our team!
We’re looking for two artists to join our team for our Hinterlands project. Since 2019 The Bare Project have been gathering stories about humans of the Sheffield/Tinsley canal, as well as plant folklore from the real and magical plants which grow along its shores. We have been leading craft, storytelling, music, and animation workshops with young people; leading foraging walks along the towpaths; and working with local community producers to put on multicultural dance, music, and food events. This work will culminate in September 2022 with a large-scale carnivalesque event, complete with film screening, dancing, performances, and a big ol’ feast.
We are looking for a Moving Image Artist and a Set/Spatial Designer to join our team to help us realise this work! Our fees on this project are based on a day rate of £158 and a weekly rate of £550. The Bare Project operate an equal pay policy, so the whole team are on the same daily and weekly rates. The deadline for applications for both roles is the 4th March 2022.
