We are looking for an artist or artists to work on our ‘Art Town’ weekly sessions from 22nd February to 29th March 2022. The selected artist(s) will have experience of working with young people and will deliver three, four, five or six weeks of activity, centred around their specialist artistic practice.

The sessions take place every Tuesday evening in Houghton Regis and are split into two ages groups, 5–11-year olds and 12–18-year olds. Each group’s session is 90 minutes long.

We would like to hear from artists from a broad range of art forms and creative practices, for example Theatre Make Up, Acrobatics or Games Design. Previous activities the group have taken part in have included Circus, Drama, Spoken Word, Visual Arts and Dance.

We have a budget of £1,000 to £2,000 depending on the length of project, art form and if additional materials or resources are needed. Whilst travel may be paid in addition to these fees we are particularly interested in working with local artists and practitioners from underrepresented groups.

To apply please submit a one-page proposal outlining your experience of working with young people, your artistic practice, how many sessions you would like to deliver (a minimum of three and a maximum of six) and what activities the young people will take part in each week. Please also include a simple budget outlining costs – planning, materials, travel etc. Please send your proposal to by 5pm on Friday 4th February. Offers will be made by Friday 11th February.
