We are seeking to engage a freelance artist or creative designer to develop existing or new artwork which engages with one or more of the themes of Biodiversity, Urban Environment, or Climate Resilience.
The artist will develop interactive, multi-sensory work and will design and deliver five interdisciplinary ‘Challenge Days’ centred on the artwork for pupils aged 11-16, and SEN students. These will be delivered at the Museum of English Rural life between 17-30 June.
The artist will be invited to collaborate with selected researchers from the University of Reading, primarily working across discipline areas related to our Environment theme.
This project is co-delivered by the Arts Development Officer, and the Impact Officer (lead for the Environment theme), with support from the Student Recruitment and Outreach Office, and from MERL. Support from all these areas will be available to the artist throughout the project.
Deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 25 February. Please download the brief for full information! Future Thinking Artist Brief – University of Reading
The project has been made possible through funding committed via the University of Reading’s Access and Participation Plan.
