CALL FOR ARTISTS/ARTS ORGANISATIONS with expertise in Animation (Traditional animation, 2D animation, 3D animation, Typography Animation, Clay animation, Flip book Animation, Stop-motion animation), film/digital arts and moving image skills with a linked focus to Digital Literacy.

Fee: £13,400

Plus £500 to mentor an Assistant Artist

Deadline: 17th September 2021 (no later than 12.00 noon)


We are looking for an artist/s, or arts organisation, to work with 9 schools in the Windsor Academy Trust Arts Ambassador Network to explore the theme of Inspiration.  The schools wish to focus work around Inspiration linked to: aspiration, exploration, journey, diversity, connections and our futures; whilst also recognising their ASPIRE curriculum. It is hoped that each of the schools will create a digital artwork/s to contribute towards a Celebration Event, either in a cinema or theatre space. We envisage the artist/s will be experienced within digital and animation practice and offer a range of techniques and approaches for the students and staff to experience and develop their skills. We are excited to hear from artists/arts organisations who respond with exciting proposals to help shape our ideas around the theme and the project brief.


The programme should aim to build confidence and skills in digital arts supporting the development of storytelling, spoken word and literacy, as well as to inspire and equip the teachers with creative approaches that they can develop beyond the life of the project. It should be an inspiring and engaging programme, and aim to provide an innovative approach to learning by developing understanding of the theme through quality artistic processes and experiences.


The Windsor Academy Trust Arts Ambassador Network is a partnership between Arts Connect and nine schools, which cover children aged 4 to 18 years (with three of the four Academy schools having 6th forms). Find out more about the Trust here.


It is anticipated that the project will be delivered in academic year 2021-22 through live workshops in schools, subject to each school’s Health and Safety policy and Government Guidance, particularly in light of COVID-19. However, this would need to be flexible and to be, if required, adapted for digital delivery.
