Leading the Arts in Your School 2021-22August 31, 2021
Curious Minds is pleased to be working with school and local authority commissioners in communities across the North West to organise extra-time cultural learning clubs, to take place during summer 2021.
We are now inviting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from cultural organisations, freelance teaching artists, youth and community organisations, to deliver summertime enrichment activities for 11-13 year olds, with a focus on meeting the needs of children transitioning to secondary school in September 2021.

Each individual local opportunity is outlined below, with further details in the linked brief document. Applying artists will be selected on the basis of the strength of their application and suitability to fulfil the specific brief.
Please be aware that each individual project is being recruited separately, against locally defined needs and criteria, and with differing application deadlines. We strongly recommend that you carefully read the full brief for any projects of interest and apply for them separately. Ideally, we would like to commission delivery partners based locally, although we recognise that this may not always be possible.
We will be updating this page as new opportunities arise. Please check it regularly or keep an eye on the Curious Minds Facebook and Twitter feeds to be alerted to new opportunities.
