Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning and PEACH West Norfolk are looking for visual and moving image artists, based in West Norfolk or the surrounding area, to support Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning’s Primary Box programme, when we launch in schools in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk in Spring term 2021. 

The Barbican Primary Box programme is a portable box filled with the ingredients for making and creating original poetry, film and visual arts.
