Museum of Me: Storytellers, artists, writers (Coventry)


The Museum of Me – The Storytellers, Coventry

The Museum of Me is a brand new project that celebrates the lives of ordinary people by creating individual museums with, for and about them. It’s a fun, personal and meaningful project that tells the story of each person through a collection of their objects and stories, offering a snapshot of the area they live in. Created by artist Paul O’Donnell with event design by Vortex Creates, the aim is for the project to go on to reach many more communities, creating museums with some of the people that live in them.

We are recruiting two storytellers, writers or theatre artists in the Midlands to work with our next cohort of extraordinarily ordinary individuals in Cheylesmore, Coventry.

This paid opportunity offers you a chance to make friends with five people you will never have met, whilst structuring a museum around the significant or insignificant contributions that they have made to the world around them so far.

Deadline: 10th March at 5pm

FEE – Anticipated 12 days work at £200 per day – £2400 total (VAT inclusive)

Extra required expenses (eg: coffees for residents) can be covered with sign off from the producer and proof of purchase. Access Costs can be claimed where required.
