South West based artist-facilitator for storytelling project (set fee)

Exeter Community Initiatives (ECI), in collaboration with the Exeter Northcott Theatre, seeks an experienced artist-facilitator to creatively lead the Ripple Effect project.

We’re looking for an experienced artist-facilitator to work with us to shape a bespoke project, working with a group of adult participants who are marginalised and/or experiencing a range of disadvantages. The 12-week programme of creative sessions aims to support them to articulate their experiences in order to influence, challenge stigma and bring about wider change. Participants will investigate storytelling through one or more creative mediums. They will work in a hands-on way to gain new skills, before applying these to produce their own story / creation. The creations will be shared with an audience (which might be digital) at the end of the process.
