Barbican Box 2022: Artist Mentor Application

barbican box theatre

We're looking for artist mentors to support us in delivering this years' Barbican Box programme. 

We are looking for 3 artist mentors to work on this years’ Barbican Box. The project aims to ignite and support creative arts subjects in education settings and provide the space, time, and inspiration for teachers to create work from scratch with their students. Barbican Box will enable teachers to be artists, explore their teaching style and subject in a creative way whilst also linking to the national curriculum. Barbican Box works in every art form and all educational settings, reflecting the remit of our work in formal education.

The Artist Mentor plays a central and vital role within the Barbican Box. We are looking for someone who has a strong understanding of creative education and good practice in working with different participant groups, especially students, teachers, and schools, in a music education setting. 

Applications close on Thursday 31 March 2022 at 10am.
