Project Brief: South Asian Dance – a sharing of heritage through
movement. Spring & Summer terms 2022.

We are looking for an artist/artists or an arts organisation to work with 2 primary schools
in Walsall – Rosedale Infants and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School – who are part of a
network of 14 schools in Walsall participating in the Walsall Arts for All (WAFA)
programme.
The project will celebrate an aspect of the diverse cultures of Walsall through an
exploration and sharing of South Asian dance styles. From this will develop a
performance which will feature as part of a carnival-style Celebration Event for all 14
WAFA schools in Walsall in July 2022.
There will be approximately 145 participating students from Rosedale (85 x Year 1) and
St Joseph’s (60 x Year 2), and we would not necessarily expect the artist/s to work with
the total numbers together except towards the Celebration Event.
As well as delivering high-quality artistic outcomes for the students, the programme will
develop confidence in participating class teachers, equipping them with basic skills to
continue aspects of the work in the future.
For the programme overall, we are particularly interested in building up a team of
diverse artists from Walsall and the Black Country, who can raise aspirations and inspire
young people through the power of the arts. We are therefore particularly interested in
hearing from artists/arts organisations who fit with this brief.

 

Contractual details:
The fee is £4,250 inclusive of travel expenses; based on the artist/arts organisation
