Event description

Description

Are you an Artist living in the Wigan Borough?

We are looking to commission new work/projects which respond to the themes of our recent young people’s project, ‘Playful Revolution’

Young people from Total ReThink worked with Odd Arts & Re-Dock to create an art exhibition on the theme of positive well-being, combining
elements of film, photography, music and audio visuals. The end
product was a pop-up exhibition, ‘Well-being World’ which aimed to create a playful and positive
environment that momentarily
removed ourselves from the stresses of everyday life, and raised awareness of the five steps to well-being.

We have two sessions organised for Artists, the first will be an
introduction to the themes, alongside some training from Odd Arts on
engaging young people in the arts.

Each Artist who attends this training will then be asked to return to pitch their idea for future work. The panel will be made up of staff and young people from the ‘Playful Revolution’ project and they will select the most appropriate artist/s/project/s.

The sessions will be held at The
Turnpike Gallery, Civic Square, Leigh WN7 1EB. There are two options of times available 10.30-1.30pm or 4-7pm. Artists are required to come to one session on 23rd Nov and one session on 13th Dec. Please state which time slots you want when booking.

Please book your FREE place now!
