Workshop Leaders

ART PARK at House for an Art Lover is now taking submissions for our Graduate-Led Workshop programme.

ART PARK Glasgow at House for an Art Lover is a cultural public space with a Gallery, Heritage Centre, Artist Studios and Workshops in Bellahouston Park. Since opening in 2014, ART PARK has provided support and opportunities for local and international artists, curators, students and graduates. We have generously been awarded funding from Creative Scotland to provide a comprehensive programme of opportunities taking place in our recently developed ART-sheds.

This summer we will be hosting a programme of workshops developed and delivered by recent graduates.
Graduates are invited to submit proposals detailing:

• The kind of workshop they would like to deliver; such as printmaking, ceramics, performance art etc.
• Materials and equipment required
• If there is a particular audience they are interested in working with
• A CV detailing any relevant experience

5 proposals will be selected to be part of the programme. The budget for each artist will be £300. How the artist uses the budget will differ from project to project and depend on cost of materials and duration of the workshop.

Below is an example of how the budget could be spent:

• A fee for 5 hours workshop delivery at £20 per hour (£100)
• A fee for 4 hours prep work at £20 per hour (£80)
• £120 for materials

This opportunity is open to those who have graduated from undergraduate or post-graduate courses since 2015.

House for an Art Lover will provide support and guidance in the planning and delivery of the workshops.

Workshop delivery with certain groups will require the applicant to be a member of, or be willing to join, the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Scheme.
More information can be found here: https://www.mygov.scot/pvg-scheme/types-of-work-covered-by-pvg/

We anticipate that workshops will take place between July and September 2017.
