Stockton Borough Council’s Arts Development team would like to commission an artist or creative organisation to develop the 2014 Halloween Walk in Stockton-on-Tees.

The Halloween Walk takes place in the grounds of Preston Park Museum in Yarm and is a popular event for the local community, particularly families.  We would like to build on previous events and we are seeking an artist/creative organisation to develop this year’s event as follows:
•Devise the theme and title for the event.  This will include developing content to be based around the route which could include performances, set dressing, sound, lighting etc.
•Some of the content of the walk is provided by community groups and volunteers and the role will involve working with the volunteers to help them develop their content
•Provide/recruit actors or performers to be dispersed throughout the walk where necessary.  The actors could provide link points throughout the walk to help strengthen the story
•The theme should be appropriate to children and families and should include the framework for a shorter version of the route specifically designed for young children.

The fee for the commission is £3,000.

Deadline for applications is Friday 5 September 2014.

For a written brief and details of how to apply, please contact Lyndsey Stephenson, lyndsey.stephenson@stockton.gov.uk or 01642 527696
