Paid opportunityReport this?
Over the next few months, East Street Arts are looking to create a portrait of Beeston in Leeds and specifically, the street where its live/work artist residency, Artists House 45, is situated through a number of projects.
As part of this, we would like to invite a writer to be in residence at the house from mid-September to mid-December 2018, to capture a narrative about these projects, as well as the stories of the street and the area more generally.
Current planned projects include a portraiture studio, a photographer and filmmaker working with local businesses and an artist duo creating mini-street paintings.
We are looking for a writer who:
- can live in the house for the duration of the residency
- is interested in working with, and in response to, artistic projects happening in the house, and
has an interest in ideas of home and community.
We expect the writer in residence to spend a minimum of two days per week on the project and throughout their time in the house, create an ongoing narrative suitable for external audiences.
