open call for local artist

jul. '22
DEADLINE EXTENDED - OPEN CALL FOR LOCAL ARTIST

In August 2022, Homebaked Community Land Trust will begin the building phase of their project to develop Oakfield Terrace into community owned homes, businesses and social spaces.

Working with Anfield councillors, we want to celebrate this by inviting a local artist to explore the theme of ‘home and belonging for all’ in Anfield. By local, we mean anyone who lives, works, or has a significant connection to the Anfield Ward.

Artists can work in any media (visual arts, sculpture, performance, theatre, storytelling, literature, film, photography) but should engage with local residents as part of their creative process and present a public facing event or exhibition at the culmination of the project.

Project budget:
£ 1000 plus £ 500 materials budget with possibility for extension dependent on funding.
You will also have the opportunity to receive mentoring support through the duration of the project either from one of the Homebaked team or an external creative.

We expect the appointed Ward Artist will complete between 5-10 days work (dependent on experience) and engage with 5-10 local residents. The project will commence on 19th September and is expected to last approximately 6 weeks.

To apply:
Please send the following in either written or video form via email to info@homebaked.org.uk by 5pm on Friday 12th August:

- a proposal outlining your project idea and how you would deliver it in response to the theme of ‘home and belonging for all’ in Anfield. Please include with this an estimated project timeline. (max. 500 words or 3 minutes recorded)
- a CV or short bio explaining your previous work and experience working with communities (max. 1 side of A4 or 3 minutes recorded)

We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.

If you would like the application in an alternative format or have any access needs to apply please contact Naomi at info@homebaked.org.uk

Meet the people behind #gettingtheterracedone - part 16

feb. '21
In the latest in our 'Meet the CLT Board' series, here's our youngest board member, Bradley Barrett, in his own words...

"Hello, I'm Bradley; I am 21 years old and I grew up in Aintree and then moved to Kirkdale in my early teenage years. I have a background in community and youth engagement and I am currently studying BA Architecture at University of The Arts, London.
After leaving school in 2015, I struggled to decide how to turn my passions into a career. It was in 2018, shortly after joining Homebaked to work on the development of the flat and 'HomeSquare' that I finally had my 'Aha!' moment: I realised I wanted to become an architect. After 18 months of nurturing and support from Homebaked, I applied and was accepted on to a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Central Saint Martins Art School in London - and stayed in London to study for my BA.
Since being in London, I felt disconnected from my community and the CLT. I wanted a way to give something back and still be a part of the organisation, so I applied to be a board member - and was voted in in December!
I am honoured to be on the board, working with the amazing team to #gettheterracedone!

People Power Vol.2 is here!

oct. '21
People Power vol. 2 is a publication created by members of Homebaked CLT, local organisation and residents and with contributions from across Liverpool and beyond. Inspired by A Homebaked Kinda Day in February 2021 we explore what it means to live, work and play well in a complex and challenging world. In this issue of ‘People Power’, we celebrate some of the many great things that happen here in our neighbourhoods, as well as share some of the amazing initiatives going on elsewhere and that we can learn from.

We dedicate this publication to Mark Loudon, our dear friend and long-term collaborator who passed away at the beginning of this year. Throughout this newspaper, you will find some of the moments in our community seen through the lens of Mark Loudon. Enjoy!

If you would like a paper copy for some old school breakfast reading, just contact us on Facebook!

With special thanks to the Arts Council, Roy McCarthy, Scottie Press and Ethos magazine.
