Made in Leicestershire


We will advertise any creative job, commission or contract for free.

We recognise that there is great value in people having access to proper work experience, where it is offered and arranged properly and is a mutually beneficial arrangement, but that this should never be used as a way of attempting to circumvent national minimum wage regulations. Please note that we will not advertise unpaid internships unless they are part of a recognised further or higher education course.

Arts Council and Creative & Cultural Skills have published these guidelines to help clarify the legal obligations of arts organisations offering internships. Creative Skillset have published these guidelines for those offering work experience in the Creative Industries.

BrightSparks Comedy Asylum Artists Development Mentorship 2017 - BrightSparks
September 1, 2017

The Comedy Asylum is a hugely successful and unique project which has been delivered by BrightSparks Arts in Mental Health for ten years. Each year the project has provided a ten week course of comedy writing and performance workshops, culminating in a performance as part of the Leicester Comedy Festival in February. In 2016 BrightSparks secured five years of funding through the Big Lottery to deliver the Comedy Asylum in Leicester, Northamptonshire, Nottingham and Derby, and to increase provision throughout the year.

Local writer and performer Rob Gee is the lead artist for the project, and as the programme of workshops develops the project will need increased capacity to deliver alongside Rob. 
One of the aims of the project is to ensure sustainability of provision of high quality comedy based activity for mental health service users beyond the life of the project, therefore there is a need to enable local practitioners to develop the specialist skills required.

We are able to offer one mentorship to Leicester based performance artists for each year until the Lottery funded activity ends in 2021. Artists will be able to apply each summer to receive the mentorship with Rob Gee, which will run between October and March each year.

Mentorship Format
One 2 hour session with Rob Gee each month between October and March
Mentee attends as an observer the Recovery College course (weekly sessions at the Bradgate Unit, Glenfield Hospital or at A Place to Grow, Enderby) between October and March (six sessions in all) and Attenborough Arts Comedy Asylum sessions (mid Nov – mid Feb)
Mentee delivers one or more Masterclasses in their artform (with support) between April and June
Mentee bursary
Each selected Mentee will receive a £500 bursary which will be available to spend over the course of the term. This can be used to cover travel expenses, and a £50 per session rate when delivering elements of sessions alongside the Lead Artist. Observation sessions are not paid, but expenses can be claimed for.

Selection Process
Artists who are interested in applying for the mentorship should submit no more than 600 words outlining the following:
Their artform and current practice
Their previous experience
Their interest in and experience of working in mental health settings
How they think the mentorship will benefit them and other plans for development

CVs can be submitted alongside the written application.
Please note, DBS checking will be required for this post.
The Comedy Asylum team will shortlist candidates and meet with each for an informal discussion to decide which artist will receive the mentorship this year.

Applications should be submitted by email to Sallie Varnam, Comedy Asylum Development Manager by September 1st.

Shortlisted artists will be invited for discussion in mid September, and the mentorship will begin at the end of September.
