The Collection and Usher Gallery are looking for a local artist to help create ‘Make Kits’ that can be distributed through local charities and foodbanks for families to make things together at home.
The creative care packages will be delivered on a monthly basis and will contain all the materials and resources needed to make something creative, engaging and unique.
The gallery is looking for a local artist to help design and put together 12 different kits to go out throughout 2021.
Jenny Gleadell, exhibitions officer at The Collection in Lincoln, said: “This small but impactful project grows on the previous ‘Make Kits’ we developed with artist Nadya Monfrinoli earlier this year. We gave out over 200 kits which included creating carnival masks, lanterns and festive decorations and made a huge impact for many vulnerable families across Lincolnshire during a particularly tough year.
“The inspiration for the new series of packages can come from anywhere; we are particularly interested in applications that consider carefully the needs of the participants and the resources available at The Collection and Usher Gallery.”
£100 is available to buy resources for each of the kits, and the artist will be paid £250 for each kit designed, meaning a full fee of £3,000 for all 12.
If you are interested in applying for this opportunity, please send a CV and cover letter explaining why you are interested in this opportunity to email@example.com.
The deadline for applications is Monday 4 January 2021 at 5pm.
