Creative Places Tuam seeks to grow Creative Team
Creative Places Tuam is an Arts Council initiative, led and managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts. The three year programme aims to develop a grassroots approach to creativity and arts engagement, building capacity for a rich, engaged artistic and cultural practice in the town and its hinterlands. Creative Places Tuam is utilising residencies, commissions, creative exchanges and development days, as well as community-based artist awards to make space for new ideas and new collaborations.
We seek to establish a panel of Tuam-based video, photo, illustration, and social media/ web professionals who will support the work of Creative Places Tuam, upholding a high standard of output and connection with the community.
We are particularly interested in those who want to be part of our creative team to help us tell the story of Creative Places Tuam. We would like to grow the team with local Creatives with a background in collaborative practice, and engagement and connections to the community of Tuam.
Creative Places Tuam will offer professional development opportunities to the selected panel members, including training days, networking opportunities and support from the Create team. All work within the programme will be remunerated.
We are seeking to create the following opportunities within the programme:
- Social media support: to provide a seamless social media presence across Facebook and Instagram profiles, supporting the Creative Places programme and communications team
- Videographer support: to work with the Creative Places Tuam programme and affiliates to document and create the visual story of the vital work that is ongoing within the programme.
