Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre is seeking a visual or dance artist to join an artists panel for the delivery of a multi-artform programme for older people as part of the Arts for Health Partnership Programme, West Cork.

The Arts for Health Partnership Programme was established in 2005 to provide a managed arts programme for older people in long stay and day care services in West Cork. The programme is supported and steered by a partnership between Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, Cork County Council, Cork Education and Training Board, and HSE Cork Kerry Community Healthcare.

This opportunity is open to artists who can demonstrate confident facilitation skills, a track record in their professional practice (visual art/dance) and interest in working as part of a team within an arts and health context.

Experience in arts and health is not essential as training and learning with artists and healthcare staff will form part of the work. Being a confident creator and communicator is essential. Work will take place in the Bantry, Castletownbere area so travel or proximity to these locations is essential.

This is a freelance service contract and subject to Safeguarding Recruitment Process as it involves working with vulnerable persons.

How to Apply 
If you are interested, please email opportunities@westcorkartscentre.com to be sent an application form and further information.

Audio and video submissions are welcome and an easy read version of the application form can be offered on request.

The completed application form and a CV should be submitted by email to opportunities@westcorkartscentre.com

Deadline: Wednesday 17 July 2024 at 4pm.

Emails should use the subject line “AfH Artists Panel Application 2024/2025”.
