Volunteers are warmly invited to join Bettina Reeves for the 2017 Abergavenny Food Festival art project.  Bettina, who retires this summer from her position as senior tutor for Theatre Design at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, has chosen chickens for this year’s art project, a theme last visited in 2008 “We will be crafting chickens from withy and willow, paper and fabric and fluttering amongst these beauties will be native butterflies of silk”.

The project takes place in the Arts Alive Wales studio over 15 intensive days from 29 August to 13 September, 9.30am to 5.30pm and will be installed in Abergavenny Market Hall in time for the Festival weekend on 16/17 September.  This hugely enjoyable and rewarding project is open to volunteers  of all abilities aged over 16 years.  Join us to share and learn new skills and to enjoy the camaraderie, fun and great lunches.  We look forward to welcoming familiar as well as new faces.

Bring lunch to share and a pair of scissors

For more information or if you want to take part email info@artsalivewales.org.uk 

The unveiling of the annual art project is an eagerly awaited moment in the local calendar whilst the sculptures are a hugely popular feature of the Market Hall, drawing residents and visitors all year round.  In recognition of its iconic status, this year’s project has been generously supported with funding from Abergavenny Town Council

cARTrefu ARTIST – Invitation to tender

Age Cymru is seeking twelve artists for the next phase of cARTrefu (2017-19) which will improve the quality and provision of art in care settings across Wales.

 

cARTrefu Artist – Invitation to tender

We’re looking for innovative artists in any art form who have a desire to create bold and original work with older people in residential care. This project is not about maintaining the norm; we want fresh, new thinkers who will really challenge and develop this area of work. We welcome work that is punchy, risky, rude, controversial – not safe, tried, tired and tested.

You will need to have experience of facilitating workshops using your art form, however experience of working with older people isn’t essential, as the programme is designed to support practitioners to develop their skills in this area. Those with some experience of working with older people are still encouraged to apply if they are keen to develop their skills further whilst working alongside an expert mentor.

Your role as cARTrefu Artist will be to develop your own artistic practice, assimilating your experiences of creating art with older people in residential care. You will complete five residencies over two years in five separate care homes around Wales. Each residency will last for 12 weeks, at the end of which you will be expected to showcase the work produced (by yourself and residents) at public end-of-residency exhibitions / showcases coordinated with Age Cymru.

cARTrefu Artists will be mentored through each residency by an Artist Mentor whose role will be to help each artist develop their creative ideas and professional workshop practice. The mentors will also work closely with care home staff, supporting them to deliver their own creative workshop by the end of the residency.

The total value of this tender is £8,550.

Project expenses such as travel and materials will be paid separately by Age Cymru. The deadline for bids is 21 April 2017 at 12:00pm.
