We’re Recruiting!

…for our delivery team for our new community arts project ‘PANDEMIC Reflections’ which aims to provide the opportunity to creatively reflect on the past two years and to create a community record of the pandemic.

A short series of double workshops (U16 and 16+ sessions) will take place on Thursday evenings, 5.30pm-8.30pm, at The Green Man Gallery starting in mid-late March. Subject to further funding, we hope these will continue through to June with a following project ‘PANDEMIC Perspectives’ building on the outcomes of the Reflections project.

We are looking for a Wellbeing Support Worker, General Support Worker and volunteers, including participant volunteers, to help at the workshops, whether for both sessions or just one (5.30pm-7pm or 7pm-8.30pm).
