Midterm Break Family Residency

A new opportunity for artists and writers with children during the Irish midterm break February 15-22nd 2020.

We know many artist’s are parents, too. The logistics and cost of child care can make residencies a challenge – and many residencies don’t even allow children. We wanted to create an affordable week away where kids can be themselves and parents can get some much needed studio time.

Two subsidised residencies will be awarded, one to a writer and one to a visual artist.

 

Each recipient will receive:

  • Accommodation for their family and themselves over 2 bedrooms at a reduced rate.
  • Private workspace – artist studio or writer’s den.
  • Children-in-residence can attend three art/craft workshops during the week (ideal for primary school age students.
  • A work-in-progress sharing Friday February 21st.

The symposium will give national and personal perspectives on creativity and education with insights from:

Caz Brader, Deputy CEO & Director Of Cultural Programmes, Curious Minds
Emma Degg, CEO of the North West Business Leadership Team
Jane Beardsworth, Director North, Arts Council England
Jeremy Jackson, Principal, Webster Primary School accompanied by his pupils
Nicky Morgan, Special Projects Director, Arts Council England

Z-arts will be sharing the independent evaluation by The University of Liverpool of My Planet: An opportunity for children to shine at the Symposium on Creativity and Education

We will also be welcoming Jeremy Jackson, Principal and the children and staff from Webster Primary School who supported the My Planet project, who will be give the perspective from the classroom, whilst artists will be sharing some of the innovative ways of teaching they developed for the My Planet programme.

Z-arts are pleased to welcome Nicky Morgan and Jane Beardsworth, ACE who will give an insight into The Durham Commission and present the national perspective on Creativity and Education. The Durham Commission on Creativity and Education is a collaboration between Arts Council England and Durham University that aims to identify ways in which creativity, and specifically creative thinking, can play a larger part in the lives of young people from birth to the age of 25, both within and beyond the current education system.

Emma Degg, CEO of the North West Business Leadership Team (NWBLT) will be starting the programme and discussing the Skills and Education Charter published by the Business Leadership team that aims to stimulate new discussions with key partners, locally, regionally and nationally as to how business can better support, influence and resource the vital skills and education agenda.

In 2017 the NWBLT awarded Z-arts, Manchester’s venue for children the families the prestigious Lever Prize. The prize was awarded to Z-arts to develop MY PLANET, a programme to stimulate a child’s desire to learn across the curriculum through arts, creativity and culture.

Further contributors will include Curious Minds, The North West Bridge Organisation and other national organisation who are at the forefront of promoting creativity and education with more speakers to be announced soon.

If you are a creative, educator, staff or student within Higher Education or strategist then join us at the Symposium to discuss the future of education and the role creative education has to play.

The cost of the Symposium of £25 includes refreshments, lunch and networking drinks.

Bursaries are available for artists and students. Please contact paul@z-arts.org to request a bursary by providing details of your current employment or education status and the reason you wish to attend.
