Matinée Outreach – Recruiting 2 Artists JULY 2020

Matinée Outreach, is a new element to our scheme and a response to the COVID19 lockdown and its effects on the project and its participants. We have had to cancel all our film screenings for the next year and know that is depriving many people living with dementia and their carers of cultural and social interaction. Our response is to recruit and contract 2 artists to work creatively with c.30 individual households (c.15 for each artist) with people living with dementia and their carers living in Derbyshire and currently isolated due to the Covid19 situation. The project aims to develop their sense of social connectedness – not only through developing a new relationship with an artist remotely, but knowing they are involved in a project that other people are also participating in, and with the option to present some of their new skills and creative pieces in public at a later date. The project will enable people living with dementia to explore, develop and grow through creativity.

We are currently recruiting for 2 artists to deliver our Matinée Outreach project. Further information about the roles, and project, and the application requirements are given in the documents below.

All applications must be received by 9am Monday 24th August 2020. Applications received after that time cannot be accepted.
