Reclaim the Space Creative Writing Facilitator
Reclaim the Space aims to engage communities to identify key issues or challenges in their local areas and to support them to develop creative responses to these, with a view to reducing isolation, increasing wellbeing & confidence and opportunities for volunteering. To date, we have consulted with 3 community groups in Deeplish & Milkstone to understand more about their perception of their local areas.
We are looking for a Creative Writing Facilitator to work with these groups to develop a poem or piece of creative writing that draws on both the consultation, and new writing developed with them between November - December.
Ability to speak Urdu or Punjabi is desirable but not essential. Previous experience of working with diverse communities is also desirable.
This will include - 2 x Tuesday morning sessions, 2 x sessions with a schools partner. Exact dates TBC. Plus 1 x meeting & 2 x prep days for developing the poem / piece of creative writing.
Sessions will be paid at £125 / half day inclusive of travel & preparation. Meeting Fee = £50 & Prep Day = £160 / day.
- a short description of your relevant work & experience of facilitating creative writing sessions with communities
- experience of working with diverse communities & any additional language skills
- an overview of your day-time availability between now & mid-December.
