Graffiti Artist for Teen Scream Youth Magazine-EDINBURGH
« on: February 23, 2015, 01:52:15 pm »
North Edinburgh Arts (NEA) is seeking an experienced freelance graffiti artist/designer to work with young people (10-18 years) to create a cool youth magazine called Teen Scream. The project offers young people living in Muirhouse, North Edinburgh the opportunity to create an inspiring colour magazine/zine which gives them a creative space to share their vision, views and opinions. Developed, written and designed by local young people, the colour editorial will be produced 7 times over the 37 week project. Within a youth work framework, staff, volunteers and lead artists will focus on supporting participants to engage in creative workshops and encourage positive interaction and communication. With photos, relevant articles and features created in structured weekly workshops, the magazine will provide a creative platform for young people to express themselves through design, creative writing, spoken/written word, interview techniques and image making (photography/graffiti art) within a safe and non-judgmental setting. Freelance artists will be required on a sessional basis with workshops taking place on Thursdays, 3-5pm in Muirhouse library. This post is suitable for someone who is experienced in engaging young people who can display challenging behaviour. If interested, artists can also be added to NEA's freelance artists database to be considered for future creative projects.

Please send a covering letter to Caroline Muirhead outlining your previous experience relating to the post and some images of previous work or links to your website.
