Calling artists working in Sheffield

Posted on: 15th June 2023

Helix Arts are recruiting a visual artist to work in Sheffield on a listening project this summer.

This opportunity has now closed for application.

We are looking to appoint an artist to facilitate a series of visual art based workshops with a group of participants from the Page Hall estate in Sheffield. 

Working in partnership with Save the Children UK on behalf of the Sheffield Early Learning Community the aim of the project is to gain a clear understanding of what it is like for families with young children, the struggles they face and the positives of living in the area. 

By understanding the concerns for families in this area, services will be better able to meet their needs and engage more effectively. 

Through the workshops the team hope to learn:

  • More about the challenges that families are facing. 
  • About the concerns that families with young children (0-2) have in supporting their child’s learning and growing
  • What are the things that families enjoy about the area they live in?
  • The services the families currently access and what could be provided?

The participants who will be taking part in this project primarily speak Arabic, Urdu and Roma/Slovak and are of mixed background.  

We require the post holder to be female. Genuine Occupational Requirement (GOR), Schedule 9 (Work Exceptions),Part 1 (Occupational Requirements), of the Equality Act (2010) applies.

We are making an immediate appointment for this role with expected work to begin in July 2023.
