A year of creative adventures with everyday Bodmin
Creative Team Recruitment
intoBodmin are thrilled to have been awarded a grant from Arts Council England to create a year of Enchanting Encounters in Bodmin. Our aim is to establish a Creative Team that will spend this time listening, learning and responding in creative ways to the many and diverse voices of our communities..
We are looking to recruit three people to form this Creative Team. We would like to work with community artists, creative practitioners, cultural connectors, producers, makers and activators. People who are good communicators and creative thinkers. People who care about community, and the value that art making and creative practice can bring to everyday culture.
The Creative Team will work closely with the intoBodmin staff, and collaborate with partners and members of the community to spark conversations, build trust and facilitate creative responses to the needs, interests and tastes of local people.
There will be three members of the Creative Team:
One will be under 25 who is from or living in Bodmin. They will be thinking about a career in community arts or community development. They will join this team as an apprentice.
The other two team members will be creative practitioners, that hold complementary skills and expertise. We would like one of these people to have some connections with or knowledge of Bodmin, and be able to forge links and make things happen with local people. These practitioners will use their skills and creative practice to arrange and facilitate conversations, and develop lively and enchanting ways of bringing people together as part of everyday life in Bodmin.
