Now recruiting freelance Creative Associates

MakeBelieve Arts is currently recruiting freelance workshop leaders to become part of our freelance pool of Creative Associates

Open Until:

Posted: 03/04/2011

We are looking for workshop leaders from either a theatre/drama/music or visual arts background. Successful applicants will have experience of working with children and young people from a variety of age groups as well as a strong belief in the value and importance that the arts play in children’s education.

MakeBelieve Arts is an equal opportunities employer and we strive to ensure that our Creative Associates reflect the diverse ethnic backgrounds and gender balance of the classrooms we work in. 

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from male workshop leaders as well as individuals who are members of groups that historically have been underrepresented in the delivery of creative programmes in primary school classrooms.

MakeBelieve Arts is also searching for visual artists with experience of delivering programmes for children and young people.
