Travelling Light: Light Up School Learning Artist Recruitment

Travelling Light is looking for artists for its new project: Light Up School Learning: An arts-based inquiry supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation Teacher Development Fund. 

From Sept 2021-July 2023 we will be working closely with five Bristol primary schools to support teachers in exploring how drama-based learning can develop communication and support pupil wellbeing and ability to express emotion. Artists and teachers will work together to create an exciting drama curriculum offer and expand teachers’ practice - embedding drama into the wider curriculum. Alongside strengthening relationships with teachers and building confidence, we want to create a collaborative, co-learning environment, where artists will be on board as co-creators and learners. 

You may be interested in this role if you have experience and passion for working in the arts (drama, music, movement) and facilitating with young people. 

You will have a willingness to develop your knowledge and experience of working with creative learning in schools or co-planning and working with teachers. This may be a new area of work for you, or you may have some existing skills in this area but are looking to expand on and deepen this work. Perhaps you are interested in how your practice can support communication and wellbeing?

You will be supported in your learning by Travelling Light's Creative Learning Officer and by being part of a cohort of other artists. 

Travelling Light is committed to promoting diversity, inclusion and equity in all areas of our work. We welcome applications from people from the widest possible diversity of background, culture and experience. 

This post is a Fixed Term contract.
