Summer Opportunities for Freelance Artists – Ignite Imaginations

We are looking for visual artists and creative writers to work on two projects across the Summer months of July and August 2022.

Both of these projects focus on providing high quality creative activities for children in local venues largely focused on areas of the city where provision and creative opportunity are low.

These projects have multiple dates for delivery in multiple venues and so we are expecting to take on several artists to deliver the work.

  • Have experience working with children and young people in creative group settings
  • Based in Sheffield and/ or surrounding areas with willingness to travel with an understanding and experience of the city.
  • An up to date DBS check 

The fees for lead artists:

  • £70 for a 1hour session
  • £100 for a 2 hour session
  • £200 for a 4 hour session 

This includes planning time and set up (expected arrival 30 minutes before workshop begins) and take down. 


We will cover mileage at £0.45p/mile, bike travel at £0.20p/mile or public transport costs for any delivery that takes place further than 2 miles from your home. This will be capped £8.80 (equivalent day pass to travel on any transport in South Yorkshire).
