Ignite Imaginations Are Recruiting 150 150 MAYA Productions

Ignite Imaginations are currently looking for up to four freelance artists specifically for a project in partnership with Maya Productions.

For full information about the project and how to apply please ensure you read the Artist Pool Pack here.

​Ignite Imaginations are seeking up to two artists with a visual arts background and two artists with a performing arts background. Their intention is for one visual (mixed media, textiles, ceramics, graphic design etc) and one performance artist (music, dance, spoken word, theatre etc) to work together on one or both of the projects mentioned. They understand the breadth of these genres and welcome artists, from a wide range of expertise, that feel they fall into either of these categories.

They will accept individual or collaborative applications and after successful delivery, hope the artists will continue onto the freelance artists pool (being offered training, networking and regular work from Ignite Imaginations).
