We are currently looking for 3 creative professionals of African or African-Caribbean heritage in Bristol who are artists, printmakers, sculptors, ceramicists, metalworkers, textile artists, poets, actors, musicians or dancers to film.

The aims of these films are to:
• Showcase creative practitioners who are currently under-represented in our programmes, particularly people of African and African-Caribbean heritage
• Demonstrate to children and young people the wide range of creative activities that are undertaken across the city
• Broaden children’s ideas about possible career pathways
• Inspire children, young people and teachers across Bristol to engage in creative activities.

Each short film will demonstrate an individual practitioner’s skills, methods of working and creative outputs. It will also include a short piece-to-camera where the practitioner talks about what motivated them, what training or qualification they needed and what they, personally, gain from their work. Our target audience is school-aged children.
