Connect: Resound - Illustration Brief

Fee: £1000
Application Deadline: Friday 4 September, 5pm

NYMAZ are commissioning an illustrator to create a set of eight dynamic and engaging illustrations for use on the Connect: Resound printed and electronic resources. This will include: e-newsletters, websites, reports and briefings. We will be using these images in this context for the next ten years*.

We want the illustrations to reflect the exciting and broad range of activities supported by Connect: Resound, and reflect the joy of music making, communication, and challenges faced within this area of online digital music learning.


NYMAZ is a youth music development charity which champions the transformative potential of music for children and young people. Working with our trusted partners, we deliver high quality music-making activities across North Yorkshire to those in challenging circumstances, including rural isolation. We are a strategic partner of the North Yorkshire Music Hub, and act as the ‘signposting’ partner for the Hub. We also work nationally, supporting Music Education Hubs to deliver more of their services online, through the Connect: Resound project www.connectresound.org.uk

Background for the Brief:

Connect: Resound works with Music Education Hubs and the wider music and education sector to support the development of online music education. This includes the following:

• One to one instrumental lessons delivered over the internet

• Livestreamed music performances for schools

• Live and recorded music lessons broadcast direct to classrooms

• Online training for music educators

The music education sector is interested in creating online provision in their work to overcome barriers which can stop children accessing music education.
For example:
- Transport, for those living in remote rural areas, cost and limited access
- Health, emotional and social issues that prevent children from accessing mainstream lessons

Our project provides funding, advice and training to support this new way of working in the education sector to overcome these barriers.
