Nottinghamshire Hospice are seeking a professional artist to work with their patients to create an art installation for their garden.

They are looking for someone who can work with and engage the patients, whilst being sensitive to individual needs and interests. You will plan and lead a series of short creative sessions with patients, supported by volunteers and the Creative Art Therapist Co-ordinator. Following this you will make and install a piece of creative work that will be situated in the garden for all to enjoy.

The Hospice have an open mind as to what you might produce, but the participation and consultation with patients should be key in shaping your ideas. The final piece of work created should also be able to withstand outdoor conditions for a long period of time for people to enjoy.

The overall budget for this project is £1000

To apply please send:

  • A proposal outlining the project (no more than 1 A4 page)
  • Up to 3 images of your work
  • CV with contact details and two referees (no more than 4 pages)
