Edgbaston Arts Champions Commissions @ The Drum

November 27th, 2014 4:36 pm

The Drum always look to inspire more artists and organisations to work with us to engage the local community, providing opportunities to enjoy arts and cultural events as both audience members and artists themselves.

As the Arts Champions of Edgbaston district (Bartley Green, Edgbaston, Harborne and Quinton) The Drum and Edgbaston Arts Forum are offering artists, voluntary and community organisations the opportunity to submit proposals to work with us to programme events for our Spring Season 2015. Between January and March 2015, they’ll have the opportunity to lead workshops, share work in progress, and deliver full-scale artistic projects with The Drum’s full support.

The Drum are interested in proposals that reflect their programme of intercultural arts activity and provide opportunities for all areas of Birmingham’s diverse community through Music, Theatre, Spoken Word, Dance, Film and Visual Arts. All ideas and art forms are welcome, and should reflect the Arts Champions scheme priorities:

• To reach existing and/or new groups in the District to develop participation and increase engagement
• Respond and add value to the research undertaken by Local Arts Forum into community arts engagement
• Provide opportunities for artist development and volunteering
• Provide opportunities for local people to influence the programme
• Address Edgbaston district priorities of improving community life, building social capital, improving wellbeing and community engagement
• Offer professional development for young and emerging artists aged 19 – 25 years of age from the District.

If you have an idea for a project you want to share with the community, get in touch. To submit your expression of interest please contact Ian Sergeant, Arts Development Outreach Manager, on 0121 333 2418 or email i.sergeant@the-drum.org.uk
