Call for proposals to provide Arts Connect and the arts and cultural sector in the West Midlands region with a programme of CPD development for Artistic Directors and Creative Producers that supports them as freelancers in their work with children and young people.

Deadline: 27 November

Commission Budget: The inclusive fee is up to a maximum of £3500 excluding vat. Your proposal must include a full breakdown of costs to include all expenses, goods and services.

What are we looking for?
We will commission a supplier who can devise and deliver a programme of support delivered through blended learning for Artistic Directors and Creative Producers who work on a freelance basis and therefore do not benefit from the support of an organisation.

There are particular challenges to working freelance in a role where you are expected to provide direction and support for others in your team. We are looking for a programme that addresses:

  • Self-management for well-being and resilience
  • Managing working relationships with arts and cultural organisations
  • Managing partnerships and networks

Find the full brief and details of the proposal here. 

If you would like further information or would like to discuss the brief please email Susan or call 07976 912977.
