Common Ground project

Invitation to tender: Film Company or Freelance Practitioner

We are looking to commission a film company or freelance practitioner to work with a group of young people, 11-18 years to make a film which will show what young people think about heritage, their experiences of heritage now and what would make heritage relevant to their lives in the future.

As part of our Heritage Lottery Funded Common Ground project, the aim of this brief is to produce a film, led and made by young people in Fenland. This includes managing the project, recruiting young people, and their engagement and participation. Longer term, we’re interested in increasing young people’s engagement in natural and cultural heritage. This project is funded by Historic England and supported by the Young Fenland Cultural Consortium. The film will be shown locally and be included in our second stage application to The Heritage Lottery Fund submitted early in 2019 for a 3 year programme.

The contract period is from December 2018 to April 2019. Deadline for submitting proposals is 12pm on Monday 3 December 2018.
