Role & Department Overview

Changing Relations C.I.C is an arts education company based in Bishop Auckland, County Durham. We deliver education to schools, businesses and communities, using the arts to transform the way people think about gender stereotypes and relationship behaviours.
Changing Relations’ aim is to create and produce art that uses social engagement as its primary medium, inviting collaboration and co-production with individuals, communities and institutions, creating participatory art that exists both within and outside of the traditional gallery and Museum.

As cultural producers, Changing Relations use the arts to transform the way people think about gender stereotypes and relationship behaviours, giving a voice to those who have been affected and generating public and professional understanding. We produce community-based participatory arts projects and deliver education and training to schools, businesses and organisations with the aim of:

✓ breaking down gender barriers;
✓ fostering healthy relationships;
✓ and transforming lives.
To understand more about the participatory art-making approach behind our educational programmes, training & resources, head to Our Work where you can read our Artistic Policy.
The Project:

Several years ago, we created a teacher resource on Sexting which media coverage of the issue indicates remains a problem amongst young people. We subsequently underwent a rebranding process, giving us a new logo and brand style elements to work with which are not reflected in this resource. We would therefore like to refresh the visual style of the resource to be more in keeping with our brand and current visual style.
If you are interested in being selected for this commission, we suggest that you engage in our existing portfolio of work, to get a sense of the visual approaches we have taken to the content we have covered. Please then provide examples of your own previous work to give us a sense of your style and capability, as well as a covering letter explaining why you would be interested in undertaking this brief for us and what you think you would bring to this commission should we select you.
We look forward to hearing from you!
