Artist, Confidence through Creativity, Collective Encounters

  • Deadline: 9th August 2021
  • Salary: £20k-25k pro rata

Following a successful Arts Council Project Grant Collective Encounters is seeking a passionate, socially-engaged participatory theatre maker and facilitator to co-deliver Confidence through Creativity, an online creative course for women.

Confidence through Creativity builds on a course Collective Encounters has delivered online with women in Merseyside over the last year. This new project seeks to take the course to a national audience, recruiting women from across the country to take part. The course is designed for women who are accessing support services or feel they need a confidence boost due to being out of work, education or training – or for any other reason.

The Artist will support the Lead Artist on all aspects of delivery as well as helping to devise the programme and support participants. We expect the Artist to be an early career artist with no more than 2 years professional experience working in this field.

They will have some experience of working with vulnerable adults, and an understanding of the community/participatory theatre sector. A bonus would be experience of working with women in a creative context. Due to the nature of the project this opportunity is only open to female candidates. We will accept applications from candidates based anywhere in the UK and you must be available to work on Tuesdays.

Collective Encounters recognises its workforce, and the workforce of the whole of the cultural sector, should be more diverse, and we encourage applications from candidates who identify as Black, those of colour and/or disabled

Duration of project: 4-6 months (approx. 26 days)

Payment: £3120 total (inclusive of taxes and expenses)

It is not necessary to be registered as self-employed to undertake this role.
