We have 2 opportunities for artists/designers/creative organisations/storytellers/performers to deliver interactive installations, practical workshops or immersive performances for our Wordpool Family Day on 1 July 2017.

Opportunity 1: Wordpool Family Trail:

The activity will be aimed at children aged up to 12 and their families at the Family Day Animal Adventures activity trail in Stanley Park. Families will be provided with a map and are expected to access each of the activities.

The Family Day activity should be a drop in that can engage family groups creatively for 10-20mins throughout the 3 hours (1-4pm) that the activity trail is open. Or it could be a 20-30 minute performance that would be repeated 3 times throughout the afternoon.

A budget of £300 per activity to include travel, materials, preparation and all expenses.

Opportunity 2: Wordpool Summer Reading Challenge Zone:

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is themed Animal Agents and Blackpool Library Service is launching the Summer Reading Challenge during the Wordpool Family Day. Families can sign up for the challenge on the day.

We are seeking activity or performance that ties in with the Animal Agents theme which will be aimed at children aged up to 12 and will be situated in either the Animal Antics Creative Zone or in the performance area.

The activity should be a drop in that can engage family groups creatively for 10-20mins throughout the 3 hours (1-4pm) that the activity trail is open. Or it could be a 20-30 minute performance that would be repeated 3 times throughout the afternoon.

A budget of £300 per activity to include travel, materials, preparation and all expenses.

Opportunity 2 Extension

Please indicate if you might be interested in adapting your activity so it could be delivered in up to four locations as part of the Summer Reading Challenge Programme. Activity or performance should last approx. 1 hour. This would potentially involve two separate days in the school summer holidays.

There is an additional budget of £300 for this extension work.
