Focusing on some key partnerships, the Critical Artist will be able to explore new ways of working within communities using the genre of music to include schools, care homes and universities, which could include bringing in additional artists to collaborate with, as and when appropriate. You will become truly embedded in ‘secondsight’, building on what has already been achieved by OOTS over the last two years and nationally by others in the last five.
