Artist Facilitator Opportunity - Active Citizens Project

a space’ arts and East­leigh Bor­ough & Rom­sey MEN­CAP are look­ing for a facil­i­ta­tor to devel­op a series of work­shops for the Active Cit­i­zens’ group.

'a space' arts are looking for a facilitator to plan, develop and deliver a series of creative workshops for the ‘Active Citizens’ group - a group established by Eastleigh Borough and Romsey MENCAP to represent the views of people with learning disabilities.

The facilitator will lead a series of sessions that will take place regularly on Tuesday mornings over 5 workshops, as well as training, induction and evaluation meetings. They will also have the opportunity to take the lead in shaping a culmination sharing event for participants to share their work in the final workshop with wider members of the community and MENCAP funders. The successful applicant will receive a total fee of £1,500 for the delivery, planning and resources the project entails.

To apply for the facilitator role, please send a written proposal to James Hunter at by 9am on Monday 8th August.

Written proposals should be no longer than 2 sides of A4 and include:

- A project overview detailing the planned activity for the sessions, the proposed structure for sessions.
- Insights in to how feedback will be captured and how the sessions will achieve the aims and outcomes as stated above.
- An overview proposal for the sharing event at God’s House Tower – with room for the final product to be shaped by the participants.
Please also include a short personal statement detailing relevant experience of previous community work in a creative arts setting. Any previous experience working with adults with learning disabilities would be an advantage but not essential as there is a budget for training.
