Brent Council on the hunt for an artist to fuel creative talent in the borough
Chosen person will need to take up residency in Kilburn Library
Brent Council is looking for an artist to spend six weeks in one of the borough’s libraries this autumn to see how reading rooms can fuel creative talent.
A visual artist is being asked to take up residency in Kilburn Library in Salusbury Road, during October and November. The artist will spend two days a week working on and researching new work while at the same time engaging library users and staff.
The opportunity is open to any type of visual artist but the work they undertake at the library needs to be appropriate to the venue.
During the placement the artist will also be expected to run various workshops across the Kilburn area.
