BLUEPRINT - ARTIST CALL OUT
Artists and creative practitioners working in any discipline are invited to apply to become an artist within the BluePrint project team. We are seeking to work with a suitably experienced artist in order to design and facilitate art-based transformative engagement process and co-creative activities with flood-effected communities. We are seeking to exchange learning, generate new artistic work and develop a ‘creative co-creation’ toolkit targeting local governments working with communities around climate risk and resilience.
