Artist Commission - Social Housing Arts Network

Social Housing Arts Network is a project funded by the Arts Council through its Strategic Touring fund. In June this year Guild were successful in securing funding for an 18 month project beginning August 2014 and running until early 2016. Over the 18 months Guild will work with four social housing providers nationally, establishing a model and touring network for socially engaged artists through process-led projects.

The four social housing provider partners we will be working with during this project are Bolton at Home (Bolton), South Yorkshire Housing Association (Sheffield), Poplar Harca (Tower Hamlets, London) and St Leger Homes (Doncaster).

We wish to commission an artist/s to work in the inner city area of Upperthorpe in Sheffield over an 8-month period (March 2015 – October 2015). The selected artist/s will work as from a central hub point but also with the flexibility to work elsewhere in the immediate community setting to deliver participant focused, high quality artist led activity with the residents.

We are looking for an artist/s with a strong track record of delivering collaborative, socially engaged art projects within community settings, with a minimum of two years’ experience.

Deadline for submissions: 5pm Thursday 5th March 2015
