Designer wanted for visual map of Preston

Blaze are seeking to commission an early career designer to produce a visual map of Preston’s Arts Award supporter offers.

About the Arts Award map

Preston Creative Exchange is Preston’s Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP) made up of a group of people working together to ensure that all children & young people have access to arts and culture in Preston. They are exploring ways in which they can create a joined-up approach to Arts Award advocacy and delivery across Preston.

5 organisations within the LCEP have been working with an Arts Award mentor to map their existing offer for children and young people to the 5 levels of Arts Award in order to create a clear and concise Arts Award Supporter offer.

Blaze are now seeking to commission an early career designer, to bring together these individual Arts Award Supporter offers into an eye catching and user-friendly map and supporting pages. The designer will be fully supported throughout this process to bring these ideas together into a practical and engaging document.
