Arts Ambassador Schools’ Network Commission

Fee: £ 4,700

Deadline: 13 January 2020 (12.00 noon).

We are looking for an artist/s or an arts organisation specialising in music to work with 5 schools (2 secondary, 1 Special school, 2 Primary) in Coventry. The 5 schools are part of the Sidney Stringer Multi Academy Trust. In partnership with Arts Connect the schools have formed the Sidney Stringer Arts Ambassador Network which focusses on developing Arts Leaders (Arts Ambassadors) amongst staff, the children and young people within the Multi Academy Trust schools.  Each school will identify 2 classes/groups to work with the artist over a period of 3.5 days per school (equivalent of 17.5 days across the whole network).

The schools wish to explore the theme of ‘Aspire!’ in an exciting and innovative way through the medium of music. This theme lends itself to a variety of interpretations which schools are keen to explore with the successful artist/arts organisation. The artist will work with students to produce a performance event hosted at the Coventry Cathedral Ruins in the summer of 2020.
