Artist opportunity: Bus workshop/performance/intervention, Dursley library and Create Gloucestershire
Dursley Library is looking for an artist or artist group to propose a story intervention, performance, workshop or community engagement to be delivered using the Gloucestershire mobile library bus on three occasions between 23 – 28 October 2017.
The work will be part of a creative and immersive project testing the Share a Book mobile library in new and innovative ways.
The purpose of the story bus project is to shift perceptions of the library and playfully explore the idea of what a story can be for young people up to the age of 14yrs.
We are interested in proposals from artists working across all artforms, e.g. performers, live artists, sound artists, film makers, writers, creative technologists, visual artists, etc.
Proposals for the story bus project could take any of the following formats:
Using the vehicle to tell stories in a community (performative format)
Using the vehicle to make stories with the community (workshop format)
Using the vehicle to collect stories (creative format where a work is made and a creative response shared later in the library)
Dursley Library has been exploring the following two themes during 2017
Stories and new technology
Permission to play
We are interested in proposals connected to these themes (but not exclusively).
