Open Call: GENERATORprojects Summer School Workshops

Open call for artists, writers and performers to host a workshop at GENERATORprojects.


GENERATORprojects are calling for artists, musicians and writers to submit workshop proposals to be part of their Summer School programme. These workshops will take place on Sun 4 September as part of a month-long programme of activities.

The workshops should ideally be aimed towards developing practical life skills that art school fails to teach students. For example: how to apply for funding, how to value yourself and your work, and how to stay positive in the face of rejection. They are particularly eager to see proposals for fun and silly workshops that will get people engaged, excited and laughing.

Applications will only be accepted from emerging artists based in Dundee and the surrounding area for this opportunity, as a means of providing opportunities for artists outside of the central belt. Artists do not need to come from a formal arts education background, but must self-identify as emerging. GENERATORprojects cannot accept applications from those in full-time education during the period of the project.


Fee
Up to three artists will be selected, each receiving a fee of £150 for a two-hour workshop that takes place on Sun 4 September.

Deadline
Sun 14 August 2022

How to apply
Please send a short proposal (250 words max) outlining your intentions to Mim at mail@generatorprojects.co.uk.

If you have held workshops before, please attach up to three images (though this is not a requirement).

Applications are welcome in a non-traditional form (video/audio recording) from artists with access needs. Please contact mail@generatorprojects.co.uk if you wish to discuss this or how they can best support you with any other access needs.


GENERATORprojects is a Dundee based artist run initiative founded in 1996 by friends Paul Liam Harrison, Andy Kennedy and Caroline McIntee. As a volunteer organisation, they facilitate a varied cultural programme of exhibitions and events. The committee strives to highlight the importance of grass roots activity and its imperative role in sustaining and developing the careers of emerging artists.
