Screen South seeks enthusiastic creative practitioners, who are experienced in working with children of all ages and able to lead them in making medieval crafts during the Medieval Pageant. We particularly welcome applications from disabled artists.
Activities include making pilgrim badges, stained glass windows and other appropriate objects in a variety of materials, including clay. Objects will be appropriate to make and take away with participants during informal drop in sessions held along the family trail, on Saturday 9th July, from 11:00hrs to 17:00hrs.
Accentuate History of Place, a project supported by Screen South, is taking part in the pageant as part of its work to uncover the hidden histories of deaf and disabled people through time. During the medieval period, many disabled people would have travelled through the city of Canterbury on pilgrimage, or stayed at one of the hospitals or alms houses for longer periods. It is these hidden stories which we aim to particularly explore through the workshop activities.
Resources and materials will be provided. Venues, to be confirmed, along the route of the Family Trail route through medieval Canterbury.
Please contact me by email, with your CV and your expression of interest. The fee will be £250 including travel expenses. Additional budget is available to assist with any access requirements. Proof of Public Liability Insurance and CRB will be required.
Deadline Thursday 30th June.
