The Guernsey Arts Commission and Youth Commission are looking for an artist to take the lead on a weekly creative club for young people aged 12-17, predominately for the communities living in the area surrounding Les Genats Estate. The sessions will be held at the Kindred Centre on Thursday evenings, 6.30pm-8pm.
Each week the artist and young people will work on short projects, with the potential to span across a few weeks at a time. The artist will work with the group to develop projects that are of interest to them, with the aim that they can give back to their communities through improving the surrounding area, increasing environmental awareness and skills, and engage with community events throughout the year.
The individual will have a strong creative background, and ideally have a history of working with the community, especially young people. The successful candidate will be working alongside trained youth workers, and therefore a team player is essential.
The position will be 3 hours weekly (session and prep time) term time for an initial period of 3 months subject to extension.
The position will be subject to a DBS check.
If you have any questions in regards to the role, or are interested in this opportunity, please email a CV and covering letter to Jade.Kershaw2@gov.gg by Sunday 1st November 2020.
