Community Engagement Associate – Big Up!, 20 Stories High & Theatre-Rites

20 Stories High and Theatre-Rites are joining forces to create a new show – Big Up! – with Hip-Hop, Puppetry and live music for 3-6 year olds and the people who look after them, which will tour Feb-March 2019.

Oldham Library is one of our tour partners and the Community Engagement Associate will work with our Big Up! team to develop participants and audiences for shows and activities in Oldham. They will assist with the delivery of the Oldham Big Up! audience and participation development plan to ensure we are working with the children and families most in need of free creative arts experiences.

They will develop an understanding of the aspirations and requirements of local families in this area, and will use this learning to make sure all opportunities are as inclusive and open as possible.

They will visit local groups, meet up with peers/other local young parents on a one-to-one basis, lead meetings and activities in community settings and support groups and individuals to come and see the show.

They will encourage families to develop an on-going relationship with Oldham Library, setting up opportunities to access ongoing activities and get to know the team at the library.
