Over 150 young people between the ages of 12 and 25 have been involved as Festival Makers, inspiring and organising the festival and some will also be running it, acting as Stewards, performing and acting as Festival Maker reporters!
There are 17 workshops and three evening events over the 4 days! Some are FREE and otherwise, no event or activity is above £5. There is something for everyone, whether you enjoy music, dance, theatre, gaming or art! Come and try something different…
Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV) Young People’s Programme are looking for a design company to develop their new website.
The website needs to reflect the ten venues that form the LOV network, as well as act as a central point of information for their new and ground-breaking young people’s programme, targeting young people aged 12-25 and providing opportunities for them to get involved in the venues as audiences, participants, producers and decision makers.
An essential part of the brief is for the appointed company, with the support of LOV, to engage a small group of young people in the design process, to ensure that the functionality and design of the website will appeal to this, our main target audience.
A fee of around £3000 is available. Deadline for Proposals in response to the LOV Website Brief (below) is Monday 15 April 2013. Shortlisted Individuals/Organisations may be invited to present their proposal at interview on 22 April 2013.
This January will see groups of Festival Makers across the South Kesteven district and surrounding areas, all aged between 12 and 25, begin to choose the events and activities that they want to see happen as part of LOV Festival in April. LOV Festival will be a four day cross art-form festival of theatre, music, film, art, design, craft, dance and comedy across Stamford Arts Centre and Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham.
LOV Festival wants to support new and emerging artists. Are you a solo musician or in a band? Are you a young theatre or dance company? Are you a filmmaker, a workshop leader, an artist or a photographer? Are you a young artist or maker?
We are looking for expressions of interest from artists and workshop leaders based in the East Midlands who would like to be considered by the young ‘Festival Makers’. We are looking for people who are passionate about working with young people and helping to develop their skills at a professional level and artists who can bring something new and exciting that the young people may not have experienced before.
