From St Chad’s Church
St Chad’s Church is delighted to have been awarded £4,539 from Community First’s Youth
Social Action Fund! The money will be used to enable a group of young people to
commission an artist to work with them to explore borders and boundaries in their
community. It is hoped that the work produced during the project will be performed or
temporarily installed under the A38 flyover in June 2018.
Having first selected the artist, the young people will work with him or her over a number of sessions to make, create, think and plan. Young people wanting to take part should come along to the Rubery Youth Club that meets every Monday evening at St Chad’s Church. The Club is run by YMCA youth workers – those in school year 6 or 7 meet from 5.30pm and those in year 8 or above meet from 7.30pm. All are welcome and it’s just £1 per session.
Speaking about this project, Rev Claire Turner said, “There are all sorts of borders and boundaries that run through Rubery – some parts of Rubery are divided by roads, others by history. We are really interested in how young people experience these things and are excited to be able to offer them the opportunity to choose an artist to work with.”
Artist’s wishing to apply for this opportunity should get in touch with Rev Claire Turner at St Chad’s Church by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and asking for an Artist’s Brief. The closing date for applications is 31 st March and interviews will be held on 16 th April.
