Art & Music Heritage Opportunities — AMP Kingston Project

JOIN OUR TEAM

Creative Youth are currently on the search for two enthusiastic artists to help deliver key aspects of our AMP Kingston project.

About AMP Kingston: 

With young people, this project is an exploration of Kingston’s music heritage from the 1960s – 1990s. This heritage will be identified, recorded and accessed in a range of interactive, sustainable ways. Through uncovering this heritage, AMP not only explores some of the most iconic musical acts of the late twentieth century, but also celebrates pop fashion, costumes, album artwork, band posters and more.

Three themes have been identified:

  • Art – the rise of artwork in branding and logos for music artists.
  • Music – the musicians and artists themselves but also the promoters who enabled their performances to be seen
  • Pop Fashion – the influence of pop fashion in relation to the creation of musical personas and identities.

About the Roles

Music Heritage Brief:

The Artist will collaborate with a group of young people (aged 14 – 16) from Anstee Bridge, to produce artwork inspired by AMP Kingston.

Anstee Bridge provides an alternative learning programme for young people aged 14-16 who face emotional neurodivergences that cause them to disengage with traditional education. They strive to encourage and enable each young person to develop skills that will benefit them in the future.

The artist must be available for two weeks from 13th March 2023 – 25th March 2023 to work with Anstee Bridge.

Piper Active is a youth club based at Piper Hall, on the Cambridge Road Estate in Norbiton, just outside of Kingston’s town centre. The group, led by youth workers from Achieving for Children, offers a range of activities for young people aged 11-19, of which include art, sports and music.
