Call out for Artists & Musicians: Lullaby Project 2013
Kids’ Own and Early Childhood Ireland welcome applications from artists and musicians who are interested in working collaboratively within 3 early childhood care and education settings in the Northwest as part of our new Lullaby Tour in Autumn 2013.
This is a unique opportunity for an artist and a musician to develop a methodology for engaging creatively with babies aged 6-18 months and their parents and ECCE practitioners, through sound, lullaby and sensory stimulation.
Working one day per week for 4 weeks in 3 consecutive locations, between September and December 2013, the artist and musician will create a sensory environment for babies to be engaged through sound, song and visual stimulation.
Images and songs from the project will be brought together into a brand new Kids’ Own/ Early Childhood Ireland lullaby publication and app for iPhone & iPad.
The fee for each artist and musician is €2100 (based on a daily fee of €150 per day), plus a travel stipend of €900.
Deadline for applications is Friday 7th June. Interviews will be held on Tuesday 18th June.
