Open Call for 2014 Skill Set Workshops: Instructors and Proposals
The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston seeks proposals for Skill Set workshops
Houston, TX (December 16, 2013) -- The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is now accepting proposals from the public to lead a class in conjunction with
Skill Set, CAMH's new hands-on workshop program and skills exchange.
Skill Set gives individuals an opportunity to share her/his expertise on an eclectic array of subjects: educational, recreational, and/or utilitarian. Skill Set allows presenters to pass on the various skills they have mastered in a non-traditional hands-on workshop style classroom setting. Past and upcoming Skill Sets include the history and use of turntables, altering musical instruments, and beekeeping. Classes do not have to take place at CAMH and can occur throughout Houston if necessary.
We are looking for interested and reliable persons to lead one of these instructional classes in our new program. We are open to a full range of ideas for what could constitute a Skill Set from teaching cooking, to sewing, to ice skating, and casting concrete. A Skill Set presenter need only be proficient and passionate about what they will teach and do not have to know about contemporary art. If chosen, we ask that you teach one class on a selected Saturday of the month beginning at 2PM and lasting approximately two hours.
To apply to Skill Set please send a short written proposal (500 words or less) describing what you would like to teach, a few sentences about yourself, and two images or other relevant media that demonstrates your skills in the craft you wish to teach. If images or media cannot be provided, applicants must have a way to demonstrate their competency in their skill. Presenters will receive a $100 honorarium.
Applications can be emailed to Daniel Atkinson at email@example.com.
