Chartwell is looking to work with an artist facilitator to produce an outdoor exhibition in partnership with local community groups. The exhibition will be called “Art at Chartwell – an outdoor exhibition celebrating Churchill’s paintings” and will explore the link between painting andwellbeing. The exhibition will increase our engagement with the local community, explore the theme of art and wellbeing and target new audiences (Generation X- Those born between the early-to-mid 1960s and the early 1980s.)
The artist facilitator will carry out three workshops with community groups. Prospective community groups include a local art group, a secondary school and a mental health charity. The workshops will focus upon the views at Chartwell that Churchill captured in his paintings and explore the link between painting and wellbeing. The output of these workshops will be paintings produced by the community groups, inspired by the landscapes at Chartwell that Churchill himself painted. Due to limited space at Chartwell, these workshops will probably take place off site and we would therefore encourage the community groups to complete a site visit to Chartwell with the artist facilitator.
A number of the works produced at the workshops by the community partners will be displayed at 6 places outdoors on site at Chartwell. The artist facilitator will be responsible for designing and creating a creative way to display the works produced at the workshops, at the spot where the view that they are based upon can be seen. The installations must be suitable for outdoor display, as they will be exhibited outdoors throughout January and February. The budget for the installations is £ 3, 500 (to include materials and transportation costs if needed).
