We are looking to commission a female identifying artist/s with a socially engaged art practice, to join us for an exciting project, ‘Wonder Women’ in association with PCVS, Metal, Arts and Minds, Living Sport, The Green Backyard, Open Door Trust and social prescribing link workers.

The project will work with women from 3 specific areas in Peterborough that have been heavily impacted by Covid-19. Through informal workshops, artists and participants will use ‘making’ as a tool to help encourage open conversation. Through the workshops, we hope to encourage the women attending to talk about their needs, aspirations and identify what they would like more of in their area.

Eligibility: Based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire or Bedfordshire or have deep knowledge or networks within Peterborough you can draw upon. Experience working with communities and delivering arts activities. Female identifying artist. Have experience working with individuals with varying needs / vulnerable adults and have a DBS check or willing to be DBS checked.

What you get out of it: £4,500 artist fee (including VAT). There is also a materials budget of £1,250, and an artist care budget will also be available.
