Actio and Culture Consortium Shropshire (CCS), are looking for Shropshire Artists to deliver exciting inclusive arts workshops for Children and Young People and their families with SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities).

The programme also includes free mentoring and training for participating artists.

Duration of Contract – April 2021 to April 2022 (session dates to be confirmed in collaboration with artist and organisation)

Proposal Closing Date: Thursday 18 March 2021 – 12 noon

Actio in partnership with CCS (Culture Consortium Shropshire), a Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP), are seeking four Shropshire Based artists to deliver an exciting programme of arts workshops for children and young people and their families with SEND as part of ‘All In’.

This is open to artists who are experienced at delivering sessions for the SEND community and those who are skilled arts facilitators but would like to further develop their skills and experience in working with this cohort.

This is a really exciting opportunity to use your practice to influence and enhance opportunities for children and young people with SEND in the arts and be part of an exemplar research and development programme.

They welcome applications from artists who identify as disabled themselves. The Actio Consortium has been commissioned by Shropshire Council to manage the ‘All In’ Short Breaks activity programme on its behalf.

‘All In’ Short Breaks are leisure activities, specifically commissioned for children (0-18) with disabilities (or additional needs that could be linked to a disability) funded by Shropshire Council and are part of the Council’s Early Help offer.

For further information or to arrange an informal conversation about the commission please contact: Hannah Prior by email,
