Liskerrett Artist Call Out!
Call for artists for creativity unwrapped
We are looking for artists in a variety of art forms to run workshops to unwrap Liskeard’s creativity from July to November 2023.
Over the summer we will run workshops with primary schools, diverse communities, adults and young adults to explore the creativity of the town. The outputs from these will be showcased in September during Liskeard Unlocked, our local version of Heritage Open Days, whose theme this year is creativity unwrapped.
The Liskerrett Centre will also host a Creative Jam during Liskeard Unlocked to include dance, music, art, printmaking, photography and writing workshops.
In the autumn we’ll hold lantern making workshops for schools and community groups to reinstate the lantern parade which was a key part of the Christmas Lights Up event.
We are establishing a register of artists to draw on for the different events. Please indicate which you are interested in. You can apply for one or multiple categories. The work will be paid at £150-£200 per day. There is also a budget for materials where relevant.
