Arts Jobs


Artist / Creative Director, Severn Arts


The Disruptors 

 We are seeking an experienced & creative movement director / artist to take a creative lead on this exciting project which forms part of the Arches Worcester Festivals. 

 The Disruptors will be a community performance group made up of Worcestershire based volunteer performers. They will appear across the city on days leading up to the festivals and including days where we have activity taking place during our various festivals between Summer 2020 and January 2022. 

We are seeking to commission a movement director / artist to work with Festivals Director David Edmunds to work with the Disruptors (around 50 people in total) to develop a number of movement phrases / interactions which they can then use / perform when out in the public realm. One potential creative narrative to be explored is that the Disruptors are building towards something that will take place in our final year of this project (2022).  Have they been searching the city for something? Are they laying plans for something? There is significant potential to develop this theme over the life span of the Arches Worcester project. 

 We are seeking expressions of interests from outdoor arts artists who have experience of working with volunteer groups within the public realm and have a strong movement background.  

 We envisage the work with the group will be undertaken in Worcester during May / June 2020 (dates to be agreed with successful applicant) and the first performances by the Disruptors will be during our Summer festival “Disrupting The Norm” the week of the 6th July 2020. 

 Please submit your proposal to Festivals Director David Edmunds by Monday February 24th 9:00am. Your proposal should include an outline of how you would approach the project and include examples (can include video links) to your previous work on similar recent projects. 

 Fee - £2,000 plus agreed expenses
