National Museums Liverpool are looking for a writer/story builder for their Terracotta Warriors ‘TRUE COLOURS’ Education programme.
In their words: “A writer / story-builder is required to write a script for an animated story performance involving interaction with school children and performed by actors. It will be inspired by an exhibition of the Chinese Terracotta Warriors at World Museum in 2018.
The animated story will be written in two versions a) for Key Stage 1 students (ages 5-7) and b) for Key Stage 2 students (ages 7-11).
The performance will take full advantage of a specially designed spectacle/backdrop. Attendance is required at creative development days on 7 & 12 September. The animated story, which will involve ‘time-travel’, have a basis of historical accuracy yet be fictional, inspire wonder, and transport children in time/place. The performance will be 30-35 minutes long and accommodate 35 children plus 5-10 adult helpers.”
The project starts on 1 September 2017. A finished script is required on 30 November with adjustments needed during rehearsal period. A large part of the contract will be completed by 28 February. The writer is also required to respond to evaluation at three agreed points during programme delivery (Feb-Oct 2018) to make the required changes.
How to apply: To apply, email expressions of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org sending an outline a) of your relevant experience and b) of how you would approach the contract. Full project details can be found here.
