we have had a few issues with some of the applications we have received so far, so please read all of the below, thank you
* please note you are applying to run one self-contained workshop and not a series over 13 weeks. you can apply to run more than one workshop but must use a new application for each workshop. each workshop you submit MUST be different
Due to a successful funding application, Live Art Local is very happy to announce the launch of a new project, and as a result, ten paid opportunities for artists, musicians, singers, poets, writers, theatre-makers, and others over the course of the pandemic.
Over 13 weeks starting from the 13th of May (every Wednesday) we will be running a weekly workshop via Zoom for people to join in with at home. We already have three of the workshops planned for but have openings for another ten. We want you and your creativity to join us and run a workshop from your home, for people in their homes.
Every workshop is an hour-long, must use, where possible, things most people are already likely to have at home, and they must positively, creatively engage people during this period of isolation and distancing, apart from that we have no criteria so feel free to let your imagination run wild.
As we are using the pro version of Zoom security should not be an issue and through this we can offer places for up to 100 people to join the workshop. However, that is not to say your workshop has to be aimed at 100 people, it could be as little as five… it is up to you!
Artists will be paid the Friday following their workshop via paypal, where this is not possible we will arrange another way of making payment.
The fee for a workshop is £150, and we have a budget of up to £50 for materials, although we need to agree to these beforehand.
To apply please fill out the form below ASAP. As mentioned previously this is to start very soon and so we have a small window to receive and assess applications.
Applications close on Friday 15th and we will notify successful applicants every three days from today so you will hear very soon whether you have been successful.
In exceptional circumstances, we will (where there is a small theatre company or music ensemble) make an exception to the workshop rule and permit a performance, though this will not affect the fee, and in these cases, unless the members of the company live together, strict social distancing rules (2m apart) must apply.
In the above circumstances, we will ask you to Livestream the performance with us and make a recording available so that we can make it available to those unable to join the livestream. You retain copyright.
Please note as this is online we are able to accept applications from around the UK!
