Call out to artists for digital content for Cultural Cwtch

Start Date: October 2021


ACW is looking to commission a range of new creative content by different artists and creative practitioners for the Creative Cwtsh. Designed to support our colleagues who work within the NHS and Social Care across Wales, the Creative Cwtsh is an online collection of resources that aims to use the restorative power of the arts to support the wellbeing of those who care for us. https://arts.wales/news-jobs-opportunities/artists-call-out-for-digital-content   https://arts.wales/cy/newyddion-swyddi-chyfleoedd/galw-am-gynnwys-digidol-gan-artistiaid

Deadline 12th November


We are looking for artists, creative practitioners and arts organisations across all artforms who:

have great ideas for digital creative activities that NHS and care staff can participate in
can bring the activity alive through short, engaging videos (max 15 mins)
have a clear sense of how the activity can support wellbeing (eg through providing fun, comfort, distraction, solace, relaxation, stimulation, an outlet for expression, a new skill etc)
Who have an engaging presentation style and can inspire others to be creative, participate and get involved
We are keen to commission content in both English and Welsh from artists based in Wales. We particularly keen to hear from artists from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds as well as D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent artists.
