Opportunities for artists

Opportunity for artists

 Seed is calling for expressions of interest from suitable community-based artists/artworkers with experience in social arts practice, to work with the community to co-create artworks to be installed on First Bus buses in and across Sedgemoor in 2021. This is a paid opportunity to work on one of our major projects, currently under the working title of Art First. 

 The opportunity: 

We are seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced artists (or teams of artists) to develop, facilitate and deliver artistic outcomes on up to three parallel projects that will: 

  • • Enable passengers and staff of First Bus and other residents and workers in Sedgemoor to engage in facilitated visual and/or word-based creative activities; 
  • • Co-create images, poems etc that could be incorporated into artworks that will be exhibited on First Bus buses within existing advertising infrastructure; 
  • • Be made into final installable artworks (fitting bus-specific standard wrap and headliner templates normally provided to advertisers by First Bus) through collaboration with our designer Lumby Futrille. 

In the final design stage, elements of different commissions may be combined – eg visual elements created through one project may be incorporated with text elements of another project. While the designer and artists will lead the final design process, community participants will be engaged and consulted in the creation of the final works. 

For full details, please see the expression of interest.

Seed commissions artists to work with local communities such as our Creative Lives Under Lockdown commissions. We also provide professional development opportunities such as our upcoming workshop on  Social Arts Practice.
