An online event hosted by Worcestershire Cultural Education Partnership (WCEP).


On Tuesday 6 July 2021, 5 – 7.30pm, Worcestershire Cultural Education Partnership will be hosting Creativity Exchange, an online event bringing together creatives and teachers to discuss how we can revitalise and reenergise the curriculum. The creatives and organisations taking part include Vamos Theatre, Dancefest, Museums Worcestershire, Translucent Dance Company, Perfect Circle Theatre, Meadow Arts, White Sock Theatre, Worcester Live, C&T and University of Gloucester.

As part of this event, we will be showcasing two new commissions from Worcestershire’s young artists that demonstrate the positive impact of participating in arts and culture throughout education. 

The opportunity

Severn Arts is looking for two young artists, aged 18 – 25, to create new work in any artform that demonstrates how arts within education has positively impacted your life.

Each selected artist will receive a commissioning fee of £250 and support from Severn Arts if needed to develop their proposal.

Your proposed work must:

  • demonstrate how arts within education has positively impacted your life
  • be suitable to showcase online, as part of a Zoom event. Work can be presented in any number of ways such as video or short film, spoken presentation, samples of your work with a voiceover
  • last no longer than 5 minutes

The two chosen commissions will be showcased online by the artists, providing an opportunity to celebrate the new work created and inspire those working in education.

    We hope to showcase the talent from the diverse communities within Worcestershire including, but not limited to, artists from low socio-economic backgrounds, disabled artists and people from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds.
