Call out for artists: Headstart Arts Project

Arts Well is partnering with FEAST and Headstart Kernow to develop creative projects for young people in Cornwall aged 10 – 16 for Headstart Arts Project.

The aim of this programme is to address the mental and emotional health needs of young people, with particular attention to the impact of the pandemic, and to connect them to their local communities, giving them visibility and a voice. Arts Well will be using the Five Ways to Wellbeing as a foundation for the creative projects.

Arts Well  are looking for artists to work with young people and have up to £3k per project available for the right ideas.

They are looking for artists with project ideas which:
– can take place between March and end of July
– give the young people agency to work on the project idea
– have some connection or visibility in their local community
– aim to help young people feel more confident, happy, alert, connected to the world and each other, able to take care of themselves.

If you work with young people and would like to be part of the programme Arts Well will also like to hear from you.
