We have launched Waterloo Well, a programme of creative and wellbeing activities for homeless and vulnerable people, and we are looking for an artist to work within a local homelessness centre.
Could you play a leading role in piloting this new service? We’re looking for an artist to complete a residency programme in collaboration with a day-centre in Waterloo dedicated to providing care and support to the homelessness community in the heart of London. This project is one of the series of exciting ventures we are launching in the coming weeks as part of Waterloo Well.
Waterloo Well is St John’s Waterloo and the Bridge at Waterloo’s response to Covid-19. We’re working with local hostels for homeless people and partner organisations to provide therapy, shared reading as informal group therapy, creative activities, gardening, employment and resilience training for homeless people and other local people for whom life’s challenges are now even more acute.
St John’s Waterloo is not only a landmark building in the heart of London but also curates a varied artistic programme of professional and amateur orchestras, ensembles, visual art, community events and the annual Waterloo Festival. As a community venue, church and organisation, we are deeply committed to being here for our community, using our own resources in partnership with other like-minded institutions. The artist-in-residence programme will sit at the heart of our creative engagement with the local homelessness community this winter.
This is a part time post of 12 days (specific days and times to be agreed), spread over 6 months.
Fee: £250/day + £400 bursary towards material costs.
