Recruitment of an Artist / Facilitator Cushendall

Deadline: September 19, 2014, 5:00 pm

Cairns Residents Group in Cushendall wishes to recruit an experienced artist/facilitator to carry out community consultation and creative engagement. The group has been working to develop a shared community space in their community since 2012.

This space which now encompasses community allotments was once a place that faced significant antisocial behaviour including bonfires, sectarian songs and dumping.

The community have worked together to address these issues, and continue to do so. Having worked to clean the area up and to encourage the community to make full use of the space they are keen to deliver a project leading to the creation of a piece of public art that could be sited in the space as a focal point for locals and visitors alike.

It is hoped that the project will generate a sense of pride and would lead to improved relationships and be reflective of all strands of the community.

This work is part of the first stage of a public art project. The outcome will be a report collating information for inclusion in the brief for a new public artwork.

The fee is up to £2,300 which includes materials, artist fees, research costs, report costs and travel.
