London Creative Writer: £2,400, Sound Artist: £1,650
Freelance barbican/20210429204724

The Trail will connect new audiences with our treasured green space, the Conservatory, by bringing it to life through storytelling in summer 2021.

We are looking for two artists to co-create the artistic vision and content of this Audio Trail:

  • Creative Writer 
  • Sound Artist


Please note, we are particularly looking to work with artists who are underrepresented in the arts. Underrepresented Artists; Disability, Sexual Orientation, Ethnicity and Socio-Economic status as categorised in the Arts Council’s Diversity Report.

This is a pilot project where we wish to commission a Creative Writer to produce up to five short stories, each positioned in a different part of the Conservatory, that will explicitly draw on the Conservatory’s flora and fauna, connecting them to their native lands so that participants can be transported to different corners of the world. We also wish to commission a Sound Artist to bring these stories to life more vividly by producing soundscapes that will be dispersed throughout the storytelling.

Applications close Thursday 13 May 6pm.

Please contact creative.learning@barbican.org.uk if you have any questions about applying for this role.
